Welcome to the Brontë Society American Chapter blog. Members live in the United States of America. We have a keen interest in the Brontës: Patrick, Branwell, Anne, Charlotte and Emily. In addition to writing poetry and creating illustrations this family produced several incomparable novels that continue to be read, studied and admired. These include Anne’s Agnes Grey, Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, and Emily’s Wuthering Heights.
Come, sit down on this sunny stone: / ‘Tis wintry light o’er flowerless moors – / But sit – for we are all alone / And clear expand heaven’s breathless shores. Emily Brontë, 1838
Dedication to the study of the lives of England’s most famous literary family and their work is the mission of the Brontë Society. Headquartered in the Haworth, West Yorkshire parsonage where the Brontës lived and wrote the Brontë Society serves a worldwide membership and welcomes visitors.

BRONTË SOCIETY AMERICAN CHAPTER
Brontë Society members who live in United States compose the Brontë Society American Chapter. Because of the number of American Chapter members and their wide dispersion regions were created. Each region includes several states under a Brontë Society regional representative who acts as a liaison between their members and the American Chapter Representative.
Brontë Society American Chapter Regions:
New York State
District of Columbia
Brontë Society American Chapter members are invited to serve as region representative. A region can encompass one city, one state or several.
Brontë Society American Chapter representative activities can include newsletter circulation and taking Brontë into the community. One region schedules an annual meeting that brings
Brontë Society members, the general public, and notable literary scholars together to talk
Brontë, plus enjoy dining together. An American Chapter representative could consider presenting the story of the Brontës to a library or book store audience in addition to hosting a Brontë tea.
