Juliet Gael: Romancing Miss Brontë
All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17 for a staff development event. We will reopen for regular hours Thursday, December 18.
A native of the American Midwest, Juliet Gael presents her novel, a mix of fact and fiction that captures the passions, hopes, dreams, and sorrows of literature’s most famous sisters.
After penning her 1847 masterpiece, Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë’s novel becomes an overwhelming literary success, catapulting the shy and awkward young woman into the spotlight of London’s fashionable literary scene—and into the arms of her new publisher, George Smith. But another man comes calling—the quiet but determined curate Arthur Nicholls.
The event is co-sponsored by Rainy Day Books. The book will be available for sale.
