The Brontë Cabinet

Deborah Lutz and Christine Nelson

From portable writing desks to personal garments to tiny manuscripts written in minuscule handwriting, the Brontës left behind countless material traces of their lives and work. What stories do these objects tell, and what do they withhold? Join us for a presentation and conversation with Deborah Lutz, scholar and author of the The Brontë Cabinet: Three Lives in Nine Objects and Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan.

The exhibition Charlotte Brontë: An Independent Will will be open at 5:30 pm for program attendees.
