Beatrix Potter Lecture By Betsy Bray


Join us for a fascinating virtual event with Betsy Bray as she takes us on a journey through the life and legacy of Beatrix Potter. Raised in mid-Victorian London by wealthy parents, Potter defied societal norms by becoming a successful writer and illustrator of children's books, achieving financial independence and owning property, and preserving substantial tracts of land in the English Lake District. As a member of the Beatrix Potter Society and an expert on Potter's life, Bray will share captivating photos and illustrations that bring Potter's story to life, covering her personal and family life, artistic developments, love of nature, and legacy as a conservationist. This 45-minute talk is geared towards adults and will be followed by a question and answer period. Don't miss this opportunity to learn about the life and work of a woman ahead of her time.
