Daphne du Maurier Festival and Centenary Conference.
The University of Exeter Special Collections Library holds a large archive of du Maurier family papers, and its School of English has been closely involved with this archive and the Festival. It is therefore hosting an International Centenary Conference, 10-11 May, 2007, to dovetail with the Festival so that delegates can participate in both.
The conference is based in Fowey Town Hall, at the heart of Cornwall, the county du Maurier loved and made famous through her evocative writing. Du Maurier's work will be discussed in terms of new critical and biographical approaches, and through the new insights made possible by access to archival materials.
Events include keynote lectures, thematic workshops and panels, a buffet lunch overlooking the Estuary and Harbour, and a reception hosted by du Maurier's three children at Ferryside, the house where she wrote her first novel, The Loving Spirit, now home of her son, Christian Browning. Keynote speakers include Nina Auerbach, author of Daphne du Maurier, Haunted Heiress, Sally Beauman, novelist and author of Rebecca's Tale, and Avril Horner and Sue Zlosnik, co-authors of Daphne du Maurier: Writing, Identity and the Gothic Imagination. Some speakers and delegates will be invited to contribute to a Book Group Day, Saturday 12 May, and to other Festival events.
This conference is expected to attract considerable interest, but because Fowey venues are small, places will be strictly limited.

Event 114: Sally Beauman on 'The Landscape of Love'
Conversations with a Writer
10.30 am£8.50 Oxford Union: the Gladstone Room
Conversations with a Writer brings a small group of people together with a leading writer to discuss a recent book. The Landscape of Love is the story of the three Mortland sisters, sharing the summer of 1967 with their friends. Sexual longing hangs in the air of Wyken Abbey, their dilapidated family home. It is a summer in which the three sisters lives will irrevocably change. Sally Beaumans beguiling and multi-layered story also explores the loss of Englands rural landscape, the complexity of love and the deception of memory.
