The Hawthorne Hotel’s Ballroom will be overrun by local fine artists and authors— including visual artists Charles Lang, Wendy Snow-Lang, Sara Ashodian, and Ellen Hardy and authors Robert Booth and Nelson Dionne. Robert Booth is the author of Death of an Empire: The Rise and Murderous Fall of Salem, America’s Richest City. Nelson Dionne’s Salem in Stereo: Victorian Salem in 3D—just recently published—comes complete with 3D glasses. Also, enjoy the music of Brendan O’Reilly and Clay Ventre & the Bond Girls. To complete the delight of visitors’ senses on this cold winter night will be a cash bar featuring a special ‘arts menu.’ The Artists and Authors Winter Exhibit is free and open to the public.
