If you believe in LOA’s mission and would like to support our activities in a substantial way, nothing is more helpful than endowing a volume in the series to keep it permanently in print. Your gift will have prominent recognition in the book, and as a Guardian of American Letters you will make a lasting contribution to American culture.Nathaniel Hawthorne: Tales and Sketches, the only authoritative edition of all Hawthorne’s tales and sketches in a single comprehensive volume. Here are such American masterpieces as “Young Goodman Brown,” “Wakefield,” “The Birth-mark,” “My Kinsman, Major Molineux,” and “Rappaccini’s Daughter,” 107 stories in all, including sixteen not collected by Hawthorne during his lifetime.
A fully tax-deductible contribution of $75,000 to the Guardians of American Letters Fund will ensure that Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short fiction—an essential part of the American literary heritage—is always available for current and future generations of readers.
A companion volume, Collected Novels, is kept in print through a gift from Dorothy and Lewis Cullman.
