Join us this Halloween season as night slowly falls and we channel the chillingly gothic and hauntingly sublime ghost of Edgar Allan Poe – alive once more in the 1st person and period costume. Poe’s haunting poems, prose, and unforgettable short stories long ago established him as the undisputed ‘Master of the Macabre’ – which he remains to this day. Yet, underneath his eventual worldwide popularity and acclaim, lay a graveyard of loss and personal tragedy. Meet the ‘real’ Poe, as Dr. Covington ‘channels’ the writer and the artist – through inspired readings of some of Poe’s most famous poems, prose, and select excerpts from his most spine-chilling stories.
