AGM and Linder Memorial Lecture
Matthew Dennison, author of the Potter biographical work “Over the Hills and Far Away” will give the Linder Memorial Lecture. He has written a number of acclaimed books about women, including Queen Victoria and Vita Sackville-West. Doors will open at noon for those who would like to come and browse, shop and socialise. The Annual General Meeting will start at 2 pm and will be followed by the lecture. There will be refreshments, and Society publications will be for sale. There will also be a Beatrix Potter bring and buy table. Guests and non-Members are very welcome to attend this meeting – there is a charge of £5 on the door. The Linder Memorial Lecture honours the contribution to Potter scholarship made by Leslie and Enid Linder.
