Hawthorne’s Secret by Mark Beauregard

June 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Part of our Seven Lectures at Seven Gables Series

When the House of the Seven Gables opened as a museum in 1910, Caroline Emmerton recognized this importance of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s literary fame in attracting visitors to the site. The tradition continues with author Mark Beauregard who will discuss his new novel, The Whale: A Love Story, which explores the intense relationship between Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville and their surprising influence on each other’s work. Hawthorne and Melville were neighbors while Hawthorne was writing The House of the Seven Gables and Melville was finishing Moby-Dick: their passionate friendship shaped their work and changed American literature.

Mark Beauregard has been a journalist, magazine editor, and, most recently, manager of nonprofit arts and community organizations. He has lived in many places throughout the United States and in Europe and currently resides in Tucson, Arizona.
