The 150th anniversary of the death of Charlotte Bronte will be commemorated in the writer's home village of Haworth in West Yorkshire on Thursday.
A minute's silence will be held at noon at the former family home, now the Bronte Parsonage Museum.
And wreaths will be laid at Haworth parish church where the author of Jane Eyre was buried in the family vault.
Members of the Bronte Society will also place wreaths in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey in London.
Lyn Glading, from the Bronte Society, said: "On 31 March 1855, almost unnoticed by the wider world, English literature lost one of its most eminent, powerful women."
