Something to keep in mind if you’re making travel plans.
It’s the 200th birthday of Charlotte Brontë — how the years fly by! Her first novel, Jane Eyre, was published around the time I started kindergarten, although I didn’t actually get around to reading it until I was in my teens. When I finally did, it marked the beginning of an enduring love affair with nineteenth century British literature that has been one of the greatest sources of joy in my life. Thanks, Charlotte!
