In celebration of Halloween, Frostburg State University’s Center for Creative Writing, the Lewis J. Ort Library and the One Book-One Allegany County program will present a marathon reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s works, including his ground-breaking horror and detective stories. The readings will be presented on Monday, Oct. 29, in Lane University Center 201 and Tuesday, Oct. 30, in Frost Hall’s Cook Chapel from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. both days.
Volunteers will read stories such as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Fall of the House of Usher” in their entirety. Some of Poe’s most famous poems, including the harrowing “Annabel Lee,” “The Raven” and “The Bells,” will also be recited. Professors, employees and community members will read their favorites from Poe. Each person who attends will have the opportunity to share a favorite selection of Poe’s.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jeff Maehre at email@example.com.
