From the Women’s Prize Archives.
Last night at the Womens Prize @ Baileys Book Bar, a panel of brilliant women gathered together to celebrate Emily Brontë in the 200th year of her birth. Our panel of Bronte enthusiasts, hosted by Prize Co-founder Director Kate Mosse, included writer and actress Lily Cole, bestselling author and Dorothy Koomson, award-winning author and activist Juno Dawson and bestselling author Louise Doughty.
The panel discussed their love of Emily Bronte’s only novel Wuthering Heights and gave an exclusive preview of the new anthology, I Am Heathcliff – containing sixteen original short stories inspired by Wuthering Heights.
