President of the US, Joe Biden and his first lady have arrived in the UK for the G7 summit, being held at Carbis Bay in Cornwall.  First Lady Jill Biden was given a first edition of Daphne du Maurier’s short story collection, The Apple Tree

Downing Street said the choice was to reflect du Maurier’s Cornish links – she lived in the county and drew inspiration for many of her works from the surroundings.

What a wonderful recognition of how important Daphne du Maurier is to literature in our country.
