Summer 2016 Meeting of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society
Stoweflake Mountain Resort - Stowe, VT
June 2-5, 2016
During an extended period of self-imposed isolation following his graduation from Bowdoin, Hawthorne embarked on a tour of New England and the Hudson Valley. In 1832, he visited Burlington, Vermont, where he enjoyed the town square and Lake Champlain, and made observations about the locals, especially the Irish laborers. In the December 9, 1835 edition of New England Magazine, Hawthorne published an anonymous account of his visit to Burlington, titled "The Inland Port" which you can read here. In the following years, he would make several more references to Vermont in various sketches. Pursuing these lesser-known but fruitful connections, the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society is pleased to host its next summer meeting in Stowe, Vermont.
