Charlotte Brontë’s popular novel Jane Eyre will be brought to life by an expert in 19th Century literature during a special talk next Thursday (13 October).
Dr Keith Hooper, who has previously given talks at both the Swindon Festival of Literature and Westbury Festival of Arts and Music, will present an illustrative lecture on the book, exploring the themes and social context of the revolutionary story.
The talk will take place in the Second Floor Reading Room at 7.15pm and will also explore Charlotte Brontë’s life and work.
Dr Hooper’s previous lectures on Charles Dickens and Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park were both enthusiastically received and he has recently completed a commissioned biography of Charles Dickens which is due for publication next year.
Tickets for the event are priced at £1.50 for library members or £2.50 for non-members and are available from the Ground Floor Help Desk at Central Library as well as all other Swindon Libraries.
