For 30 years I worked as a professional librarian in a wide variety of organisations, from stately homes to a prison library including for two public library authorities. I co-founded the Beatrix Potter Society in 1980, having worked for 5 years as Librarian of the National Book League ( now the Book Trust), then custodians of the Linder Collection of original watercolours, drawings and first editions by Beatrix Potter. During that time I helped curate the first exhibition of her original material to be taken to New York, Boston and Philadelphia.

I have given talks about Beatrix Potter to widely differing audiences many times during my working life, both here and in the USA, and since my retirement. Most recently this year I have given several well received talks to WI meetings on Zoom. I would be delighted to entertain your group and share my knowledge about this many talented writer. As you'll see, she certainly wasn't at all like the image of Beatrix Potter portrayed by Rene Zelwegger!
