Glass Town, Angria & Gondal.
The story of the four young Brontë siblings creating fantastical imaginary worlds which they peopled with their toy soldiers has entered into the cultural consciousness, but how much do we actually know about these juvenile creations? Join academic Dr Emma Butcher and artist Isabel Greenberg to get close-up with our collections and explore the worlds of Glass Town, Angria and Gondal in this exclusive after-hours event.

Dr Emma Butcher is an expert in the history of children and war, was a BBC New Generation Thinker in 2017 and published the monograph The Brontës and War in 2020.

Isabel Greenberg is a London-based illustrator and writer, and a New York Times bestselling graphic novelist. Her most recent release, Glass Town, is a graphic not-quite-biography of the Brontës, released in spring 2020.
