The Brontë Society is delighted to announce that it is hosting a conference to celebrate the life and work of Anne Brontë in her bicentenary year. The conference, ‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200 will take place at the Crown Spa Hotel, Scarborough, UK, 4 -6 September 2020, and presents an ideal opportunity to challenge the long-held perception that the youngest Brontë sibling was the least talented, and lacked the genius of her sisters.
