101316poeA Terrifyingly Good Time: An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe (SCHA Scholarship Fundraiser), October 21st

Edgar Allan Poe, January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849, was an American writer, editor, and literary critic, best known for haunting and mysterious tales. When hearing the name “Poe”, one will usually think of the famous narrative poem, “The Raven” (published in 1845), and the dark images that work conjures. Join us on this October evening, as we read aloud the works of Edgar Allan Poe in celebration of Halloween. The historic Smyrna Opera House was built just 20 years after the year of Poe’s death, the ambiance of the building creating a perfect setting with which to hear the tales of Poe.
