Glass TownBook - 1997
In 1829 three remarkable young sisters and their brother began to invent a saga that carried well into their adult years. Only after their deaths, were over a hundred miniature books and magazines, all written in microscopic hand printing, discovered. The tiny manuscripts chronicled a world the children created and kept secret all their lives, a world they called Glass Town .
Raised in an austere home, set against the loneliness and isolation of the vast English moors, these children became authors whose works continue to captivate generations of readers right up to the present day. Here master storyteller Michael Bedard offers a glimpse into the lives of Anne, Emily, And Charlotte Bronte who would later give us such classics as Agnes Grey , Wuthering Heights , and Jane Erye .
