The Louise Brooks Society is devoted to the appreciation and promotion of the life and films of Louise Brooks. The mission of the society is to honor the actress by stimulating interest in her life, films and writings, as well as her place in 20th century culture; by fostering and coordinating research; by serving as a repository for relevant material; and by advocating for the preservation and restoration of her films and other material.

The purpose of the LBS is to promote interest in the actress by serving as a focal point for various related activities; by disseminating accurate information including scholarly texts; and by offering individuals a variety of materials to aid in their appreciation of the actress. Above all, the LBS encourages the viewing of Brooks’ surviving films, and the fellowship of her admirers. To this end, the LBS has published books, mounted exhibits, and put on events and screenings.

Future projects include ongoing development of its website, blog, and social media presence, as well as the publication of new material about the actress in the form of both books and e-books. The LBS has also begun creating video shorts and podcasts for its YouTube channel. Other projects are on the drawing board.
