Not one but TWO fantastic writers will be here at Ponden Hall on the evening of Saturday August 31 from 7-9pm to talk about their new books over a glass of bubbly. Sunday Times bestselling novelist Rowan Coleman’s new novel ‘The Girl at the Window’ is a ghostly love story told across time, set right here at Ponden Hall, and woven in with its real-life history. Sharon Wright’s new book ‘When Maria Met Patrick: The Mother of the Brontës’ is the first ever biography of the Brontës’ mother Maria Branwell, and has uncovered startling new information about the family’s connections with smuggling. Both Sharon and Rowan will be here to talk about their books, answer your questions, and sell some copies over a glass of Prosecco. Tickets are FREE, but you MUST reserve a place – first come, first reserved – since places are limited and demand will be high. To book email Julie at or ring 01535 648608
