The House of the Seven Gables: An Illustrated Classic

December 1 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Event Price: $10

Salem resident Jack Butterworth is a retired newspaper reporter, a former comic book writer and a collector of comic book art. Using pages of original art from The House of the Seven Gables and other Classics Illustrated publications, he will explore the story behind the comics and the company.

The Classics Illustrated comic book series issued two adaptations of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel in two different decades. Each version gives us important insights into the company, the history of comic books and American cultural history.
