POEtry for Young Audiences: Edgar Allan Poe
Fun sPOEtackular Poe Plans for Friday evenings.
Friday, Oct 23 & 30
7:30pm, Free

Once upon a midnight dreary… Join us on Friday nights, as we celebrate the works of Edgar Allan Poe! Each night we look at different stories, different performers, and/or different adaptations of the stories. Come hear the wonderful words of Poe and then join us in a Community Read and Open Mic to end the evening! We’ll play a few rounds of Poe Bingo and Poe Trivia, and create our own Poe montages. The Friday evening readings are dedicated to our young audiences with shortened tales and poems suitable for middle and high-school students.

And on Friday, October 30, our virtual escape rooms and scavenger hunts kick off the Halloween weekend on our website,
