Sophia Peabody Hawthorne: Citizen of the World

  • The House of Seven Gables 115 Derby Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

ophia Peabody Hawthorne moved beyond her 19th century New England roots to become an intrepid traveler and an expatriate. Her capacity to appreciate foreign cultures and her decision to leave her native land forever are topics that raise a question with contemporary relevance: What exactly does it mean to be an American? 

This is a special lecture with Patricia Dunlavy Valenti.

A book signing in our Museum Store will follow the lecture.
