Dead End in Norvelt Chapter 16 Summary

  • It seems Mrs. Dubicki has finally had her tea date with the Grim Reaper—she's dead.
  • Mrs. Dubicki shares a death date (July 4th), with Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, giving Miss Volker something fun to talk about in her obit. 
  • We learn that Norvelt had been originally based on the Jeffersonian principle of self-sufficiency, and that each family was given a plot of land that would feed them during rough times.
