News Display: Emily Bronte's Birthday

A native of Yorkshire England, Emily Bronte was born on July 30, 1818 to a highly literary family. One of six siblings, Emily, together with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, originally published their work under male pseudonyms. Written by Ellis Bell between 1845 and 1846, Emily's first and only novel Wuthering Heights, a story of doomed love and revenge, grew to become a classic work of English literature. Charlotte edited the manuscript for the posthumous publication of the second edition.

News will trace the life and influence of Emily Bronte, who was home educated; served as a governess and school teacher; and aspired to open her own school with Charlotte one day
