Plymouth Public Library event

Raised by wealthy parents in mid-Victorian London, Beatrix Potter became a multi-faceted woman whose life and work remains a source of inspiration and interest today.  Against many odds, she developed a successful career as a writer and illustrator of children’s books that are still highly popular worldwide and have been translated in many different languages.  She achieved financial independence and owned property during an era in which women had few educational options, lacked legal rights, and were barred from most participating in professions.  She used her earnings to purchase and preserve substantial tracts of land and 17th Century farm buildings in the English Lake District, eventually leaving them to the National Trust.  Beatrix Potter was clearly a force to be reckoned with, a “woman ahead of her time” in many ways.
