In 2005 The Beatrix Potter Society launched an exciting project. Entitled Introducing Beatrix Potter, it supports and brings together Members giving talks or providing presentations to adult groups about Beatrix Potter, and those who might be interested in doing so. A leaflet with brief biographical details of Beatrix Potter and a short book list, as well as information about the Society itself, is available as a hand-out. This Society initiative will help to bring the legacy of Beatrix Potter to a wider adult audience. A record of such events is kept by the organisers of the project – in the UK and the USA – who receive feedback questionnaires so that the success of and response to these presentations can be monitored.
Society Members in the UK, USA and France are already involved in events within this scheme. There is a translation of the leaflet into French. The Society has a number of images on CDs which Members may borrow to enhance their talks.
If you would like to be involved in this project as a speaker, or would like to arrange for an Introducing Beatrix Potter presentation for your group, then please contact email@example.com.
