Nathaniel Hawthorne: The Haunted Mind

Nathaniel Hawthorne: The Haunted Mind

Tuesday July 2nd, 7pm, $15 pp

The Friends of Oakwood Cemetery welcome back literary historian Rob Velella, who dramatically brings to life 19th C. author Nathaniel Hawthorne. Dressed as Hawthorne and taking on his persona, Velella will read some of the reclusive writer’s shorter works and then answer questions. Through his performances and lectures, Rob strives to bring writers of the past back to readers of today. His previous Oakwood performances as Edgar Allan Poe have been extremely popular and complete sell-outs.

The program will take place on Tuesday July 2nd at 7pm in the Earl Chapel at Oakwood. Seating is limited. $15.pp must be paid in advance. Call 518-238-0090. Leave your name, phone, and the number of people attending. If you are paying by credit card someone will call you for that information. Do not leave your CC number in your message. You can also drop off your check, payable to the Friends of Oakwood, at the cemetery office 50 – 101st street Troy.
