The reading group will be a relaxed and informal opportunity to discuss and share ideas about the macabre and psychological stories in this brilliant collection, including the masterful ‘Blue Lenses’. Please can participants have read the short stories; no further preparation is necessary. Just bring yourself, your copy of the book, and your enthusiasm for du Maurier!
