In times like this we lean into each other. Last year we began a piece on Ken Nerger, a man whose life has been by no means easy. We just finished Ken’s piece and I want you to hear it. If it were a funny or happy-go-lucky story I’d wait, but this one…this one seemed important to share now. Pull someone close, turn up the volume, if you listen he’ll show you how to keep on.
July 30, 1818: English Author Emily Brontë is Born
Emily Brontë, of the famous Brontë sisters writing trio, was born on this day in 1818 in Yorkshire, England. Because of the harsh living conditions in disease-ridden 19th Century England, the Brontë sisters witnessed the deterioration and death of nearly all of their family members, which deeply impacted their writing. Emily Brontë herself was met by an early death in 1848, leaving behind the legacy of a single novel, Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic work of English literature.
