“The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?”- Edgar Allan Poe
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, and the ambiance of the building creates a perfect setting with which to hear the tales of Poe.
