Stephen Collins will offer a six-week seminar examining some of the short stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804‐1864). He was part of what was considered The American Renaissance of the 1850’s which ushered in the work of Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. Four of his short stories: “Young Goodman Brown,” “The Minister’s Black Veil,” “The Birthmark,” and “Wakefield” will be examined. The first class will be a biographical sketch of the man
and his times.
Classes will meet on Fridays, November 15‐December 20 from 1‐2 pm at the Brookline Senior Center. Cost of class is $35. Space is limited, but we do require a minimum of 10 participants in order to offer this course. Please call 617‐730‐2777 to register.
