The Famous Five Illustrated
Beckenham Library 3 to 4.30pm, Thursday 19th October
For many people who read the original Famous Five books, the illustrations were a key part of the experience. Their creator was Eileen Soper; already respected as an etcher in her teens, in 1927, her talent was compared to Mozart's.
This illustrated talk will tell her story and try to explain why she never fulfilled her early promise.
Free admission, no tickets required.
