Meet Nathaniel Hawthorne

“Meet Nathaniel Hawthorne” brings Hawthorne to its audience through his own words, in an immediate and personal way. The audience is introduced to the author in a moment of creative frustration—he cannot write. In an effort to rekindle his literary inspiration, he performs dramatic readings for his listeners from his most famous works—The Scarlet Letter, The House of the Seven Gables, Young Goodman Brown, and others. The stories come to vivid life through Hawthorne’s vocal and physical embodiment of his characters.

Paul Riopelle has decades of theatrical experience and has recently combined his love of theatre and classic literature into a number of educational experiences in New York, Cincinnati, and the regions.

Program offered in partnership with the Trustees.
