Three more great du Maurier related events at the Fowey Festival today
There are three more great du Maurier related events taking place at the Fowey Festival today.
Dr Laura Varnamís reading group discusses The Flight of the Falcon, Professor Avril Horner and Professor Sue Zlosnik are in conversation with Professor Helen Taylor on the subject of Daphne du Maurier and history and the classic film of Rebecca, starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier, is being screened. Check with the box office or go on line if you donít already have tickets for these events.
At 9.30am, in Fowey Hotel, Laura will be leading her second reading group of the Festival. This morning the book being discussed will be The Flight of the Falcon. This is one of Daphneís later novels and probably one that is less well known and so this morning presents an excellent opportunity to discuss this book.
At 11am, in Fowey Town Hall, Professor Avril Horner and Professor Sue Zlosnik are in conversation with Professor Helen Taylor. Avril and Sue are popular regulars to the Festival and have spoken about different aspects of Daphne du Maurierís work in previous years. Today they will look at Daphne du Maurierís treatment of the histories of family, place and literary tradition in Cornwall and beyond.
At 8pm, in Fowey Town Hall, as a special treat in this 21st anniversary year of the Fowey Festival, come and enjoy du Maurier film evening. The film is, of course, the classic 1940 version of Rebecca starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier. This Oscar winning film never fails to entertain and captivate viewers, so buy yourself a glass of wine or a soft drink and enjoy.
We would like to thank Jamaica Inn for sponsoring all the du Maurier related events at this yearís festival.
