The Nathaniel Hawthorne Society is dedicated to the global study and appreciation of the life and works of Nathaniel Hawthorne. A nonprofit educational organization, the Society–through its annual meetings at the MLA Convention and ALA Conference; its triennial conferences that rotate between American and international venues; and the Nathaniel Hawthorne Review–encourages communication among scholars and the general public by expanding the possibilities for shared responses to Hawthorne’s achievement.
