By Daphne du Maurier

A Reading Group with Dr Laura Varnam

9.30am to 10.30am

Come along to the Fowey Parish Hall for an informal reading group discussion of du Maurier’s fascinating short story collection, The Breaking Point (1959), with Dr Laura Varnam from University College, Oxford. Laura is a du Maurier expert, researcher, and regular contributor to the Festival. 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!
