Brontë Parsonage Museum Fund Raising Appeal

From Mike Finn — Please read!

Mike Finn's Fiction

The future of the Brontë Parsonage Museum is at risk. The Brontë Society, who run the museum at Haworth, say that the COVID-19 lockdown closures have produced an estimated loss of £500,000. After receiving money from Arts Council England’s Emergency Response fund, the end-of-year deficit will be £100,000, placing the future of the Museum at risk.

The Brontë Parsonage Museum offers visitors a unique view of the environment the Brontës lived and wrote in and provides a focus for continuing to study and research their lives and work.

The Brontë Society has launched a JustGiving page to raise funds. Visit it if you’d like to help keep this piece of history available to everyone.

Reblogged from: Carpe Librum

This course at Medieval Courses is 1/2 price until August 14th. I have signed up to take it and thought some of you might be interested as well. With payment ($49), you receive lifetime access to 24 modules with audio, quizzes, & additional reading recommendations. The author of the course is Toni Mount, who should sound somewhat familiar. She is also the author of last month’s More Historical than Fiction selection, Colour of Poison.
