Beatrix Potter ~ August 2012

Join the Environmental Book Club at Oglebay’s Schrader Center in Wheeling West Virginia.    Every third Thursday of the month. This month, join us to read a book about Beatrix Potter : A life in Nature by Linda Lear.

August 16th, 2012 at 7pm

Linda Lear Beatrix Potter

In this remarkable biography, Linda Lear offers a new look at the extraordinary woman who gave us some of the most beloved children’s books of all time. Potter found freedom from her conventional Victorian upbringing in the countryside. Nature inspired her imagination as an artist and scientific illustrator, but The Tale of Peter Rabbit brought her fame, financial success, and the promise of happiness when she fell in love with her editor Norman Warne. After his tragic and untimely death, Potter embraced a new life as the owner of Hill Top Farm in the English Lake District and a second chance at happiness. As a visionary landowner, successful farmer and sheep-breeder, she was able to preserve the landscape that had inspired her art. Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature reveals a lively, independent and passionate woman, whose art was timeless, and whose generosity left an indelible imprint on the countryside. – Macmillan
