Naked Boys Reading: The Brontës
A fundraising evening for Islington Mill
3 February 2017, 7:30pm
Golden Lion Todmorden, Fielden Square, Rochdale Road, Todmorden OL14 6LZ
£8.00 (Book online)

In their triumphant return to the “Greater Manchester Area” Naked Boys Reading bring you a special evening of boys and literature in support of Islington Mill!

Publishing under male pseudonyms, the Brontë sisters established a unique place in our literary canon. For our evening, the language of Currer (Charlotte), Ellis (Emily) and Acton (Anne) will once again assume a masculine mode, while our boys read to you their stories that we have all come to love.

We’ll interrogate the gendered positions from which our literary traditions speak to us. We’ll desire more than within reach. We’ll believe while we tremble. We’ll trust while we sleep. And we’ll probably sing some Kate Bush, to be honest.

Naked Boys Reading is produced by the Haus of Husbands. DJ, the Duchess of Pork, will spin you some tunes throughout the night. The readings end with knee-up to literary disco – the perfect ending to a night of nude men reading hard.
