The Brontë Stones

 02/05/2018

The idea for the Brontë Stones was conceived by Bradford-based writer Michael Stewart and is curated and delivered by Bradford Literature Festival (BLF).  The project features four new, original works of writing, engraved onto stones in different locations connecting the captivating 8 mile trail between the Brontë sisters’ birthplace in Thornton and the Brontë family parsonage at Haworth.
 
Kate Bush, Carol Ann Duffy, Jackie Kay and Jeanette Winterson, to celebrate the literary legacy of the Brontë sisters. The project, which launches at the festival in July, features a new permanent multi-site public art installation set in the rugged landscape of Yorkshire, that the Brontës themselves immortalised with novels such as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.
 
Forty years after releasing her hit Wuthering Heights musician Kate Bush has crafted a passage dedicated to Emily; poet laureate Carol Anne Duffy pays tribute to Charlotte and fellow poet Jackie Kay, Anne.   Author Jeanette Winterson reflects on the Brontë legacy as a whole.  The unveiling on the Yorkshire Moors will take place during the Bradford Literature Festival (30 June – 9 July).
