This Halloween season as night slowly falls, we channel the chillingly gothic and hauntingly sublime ghost of Edgar Allan Poe. His haunting poems, prose, and unforgettable short stories established him as the undisputed "Master of the Macabre’". Yet underneath his eventual worldwide popularity and acclaim, lay a graveyard of loss and personal tragedy. Meet the "real" Poe, as Dr. Covington, in period costume, "channels" the writer and the artist – through inspired readings of some of his most famous poems, prose, and select excerpts from his most spine-chilling stories.
