The Daphne du Maurier Society of North America – September event
On Saturday 16th September, the Daphne du Maurier Society of North America will meet for their Fall short story study to discuss Daphne du Maurier's short story The Breakthrough. University of Dallas scholar Dr Sarah Berry will lead the event with her analysis of this remarkable short story.
Comments on the story of The Breakthrough:
The Breakthrough involves a child who may have access to her dead twin's life energy, a terminal cancer patient willing to donate his, and the real dilemma of the story arising after the death has occurred. Daphne du Maurier's construct of various weak and odd characters at the centre of a life-altering experiment is a brilliant literary technique - sci-fi or otherwise.
The event takes place from 1pm until 3pm at The Kinney's, 5214 Palomar Lane, Dallas, TX 75229
Afternoon Tea will be served.
The event will be available by ZOOM.
