The work of the Bronte sisters is set to be explored at a free event hosted by experts from the University of Chester.

Set for Thursday, June 6, the study day is designed not just for fans of the sisters' works but also for those wishing to delve deeper into the writings of three Victorian era writers.

The event will be hosted by the university's English literature team and will take place at the Vicarage on Parkgate Road in Chester, from 10am to 1.30pm.

There will be talks by professor Melissa Fegan, who will be focusing on Charlotte, Alison Newbold, who will be detailing Emily's work, and professor Deborah Wynne, discussing Anne.

The talks will be followed by a reading group discussion based on extracts from the sisters’ works.

The trio are renowned for their timeless works, including Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, Emily’s Wuthering Heights, and Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

The Chester academics are noted authorities on the siblings, with forthcoming publications featuring their insights.

Professor Wynne said: "The work of the Brontë sisters continues to fascinate readers to this day and we are really looking forward to discussing our insights and meeting others who share a passion for their work."

Professor Wynne has co-edited a book with Amber K. Regis entitled The Edinburgh Companion to the Brontës and the Arts due to be published in December.

The book will feature a chapter on the Brontës and Ireland by professor Fegan.

Ms Newbold has an article on Charlotte Brontë that will be published in the July issue of the journal Brontë Studies.
