The Brontes vs. Jane Austen: A conversation with Finola Austin & Natalie Jenner
Two Books, Two Authors:
Bronte's Mistress by Finola Austin
& The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner
Ever wonder how classic writers influence modern writers? How they weave a new story while maintaining a revere for the prose? Join us on August 13th via Zoom for a 90-minute discussion between these two contemporary authors.
While not necessary to attend the event, we always encourage support for the authors and we invite you to purchase their respective novels on our website below.
Join debut novelists Finola Austin (Bronte's Mistress) and Natalie Jenner (The Jane Austen Society) for this event focused on some of the most celebrated and loved women novelists of the nineteenth century.
Finola and Natalie will discuss:
•Branwell Bronte's scandalous affair with an older woman, which inspired Finola's novel Bronte's Mistress
•What inspired Natalie to fictionalize the story of the Jane Austen Society's origins in her novel, The Jane Austen Society
•Their favorite (and least favorite) Austen and Bronte novels
•What drew them to the Brontes and Austen, and whether they'd ever consider going over to the other side..
•Why Austen and the Brontes, and other women writers, are often pitted against each other and what we can do to change this
