Beatrix Potter’s books, adored by children worldwide, are all that most people know of the brilliant, eccentric author of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. But Beatrix Potter was much more: a naturalist, farmer, scientific illustrator, stockbreeder, and an influential conservationist of England’s Lake District. Learn about her life, her work, and her legacy. Copies of her works from the MSU Libraries’ Special Collections will be on display.
