The Norwood Society’s next talk, on Thursday May 19, celebrates the bi-centenary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth with a talk by the biographer of the Brontes’ biographer.
Winifred Gerin: a writer’s life from Norwood to Howarth, will be presented by the author Helen McEwan, and concerns Gerin, who was an important biographer of the Bronte family.
Gerin spent her childhood on South Norwood Hill and McEwan has recently published a biography of Gerin and her interesting family. This talk is of interest to not only those with an affection for the Brontes but also those concerned with local history and the people of the past who made Norwood.
The talk begins at 7.30pm at the Upper Norwood Library, Westow Hill, SE19 1TJ.
The Norwood Society’s research group is still meeting at the Upper Norwood Library on the second and fourth Thursday of the month at 10am.
