Norman Jones, an associate professor of theatre at Gordon College, brings to life the famed Salem writer Nathaniel Hawthorne in an hour-long, compelling and inspired performance. With wit and candor Mr. Hawthorne discusses his influences and friends, including such notable writers as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Herman Melville. He also speaks of his deep love and extrraordinary marriage to Salem’s daughter Sophia Peabody. By turns humorous and deeply touching, this performance captures the heart of one of America’s most important writers.

Norman Jones founded History Alice and directed Cry Innocent for seven years. He has been performing the role of Nathaniel Hawthorne for fifteen years.
