Nathaniel Hawthorne: The Haunted Mind*

Remembered today for his novels like "The Scarlet Letter" and "The House of the Seven Gables," Massachusetts author Nathaniel Hawthorne focused on tales and short stories for the majority of his career. Due to his reclusive nature, however, Hawthorne never offered a public reading in his lifetime and, in fact, often scorned the fame which he earned. For this presentation, however, the author himself (portrayed by literary historian Rob Velella) will return to read some of his short works which explore the dark side of human nature. A question and answer session will follow the performance. 

About the presenter: Rob Velella is an independent literary historian and playwright specializing in American literature of the 19th century. In his ongoing efforts to bring the writers of yesterday back to the readers of today, he has dramatically brought to life several literary figures, including the young Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe.

Almost everyone recommends the child to a horrible fate.  Two years later, Essuman wonders why her child can’t walk.  Nuku is determined to have Cerebral Palsy as well as Downs Syndrome.  She then is even more determined to find a cure, whether through surgery, medicine man or false prophet.  But none of this goes her way. Eventually this leads to a climax where all her love has run out.  Stick around for the answer to her problems, as well as some lovely African scenery.

The organization’s work quickly spread to combating censorship, securing the right to assembly, and promoting free speech in schools. About the Presenter: Brenda Lee Green joined the ACLU as a high school senior and has maintained a three decade relationship with the ACLU of Pennsylvania as a member, volunteer, donor, and board member. Most of her work with the ACLU involves fighting censorship.

Nonverbal Communication: “The Hidden Message” *

In face-to-face communication, body language accounts for more than two thirds of the impact of your message. It is always more emotionally revealing and always more emotionally accurate than what we say. In this session, we will learn ways to enhance body language as well as how to understand the hidden messages sent by others. We will examine first impressions, consider how rapport is established, and look at projecting personal power. Learn how your appearance, posture, gesture, facial expression, eye contact, voice, touch and even smell impact your face-to-face communication. Special attention is given to gender differences and how they may account for misunderstanding.  

About the presenter: Bill Acheson is an expert in nonverbal communication. As a faculty member of the Department of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh for over 20 years and as a professional speaker since 1994, Bill has spoken to thousands of people across the United States about how to use body language to communicate more effectively.
