WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Glynnis Fawkes, author and illustrator
December 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Glynnis Fawkes, author and illustrator, will be giving a talk at the library on Wednesday, December 30, at 7:30 p.m. She will talk about her graphic novels, particularly “Charlotte Bronte Before Jane Eyre.” The book, which is the latest publication from the Center for Cartoon Studies, tells the story of Bronte’s life on the Yorkshire moors to the age of 31 when she submitted the manuscript for her first novel to the publisher. Glynnis has carefully researched her subject, and includes many details she has learned from Charlotte’s letters and diaries. She includes Charlotte’s own words throughout the text, along with specific happenings from her life. Although the book is being marketed to the teenage audience, it certainly will appeal to adults, especially Bronte fans. Besides this book, Glynnis has created several other graphic novels, several of which are biographical, including one from a winter she and her husband spent in Woods Hole. Her line drawings catch the place and the emotions of her characters very clearly and vibrantly. This event is open to the public and is offered free of charge
