The Wind and the Willows Revisited Through Its Illustrators - Lecturer: John Ericson

The classic tale of Ratty, Mole and Mr Toad have been in print since 1908. What is less well known is that this story has been illustrated by more than ninety artists - making it the most widely illustrated book in the English language. It deserves recognition as a novel in which adult readers will find not just humour and entertainment but wisdom and meaning.

John Ericson is an educational consultant and this has given him the opportunity to give lectures and presentations at conferences all over the worlds.
