Edgar Allan Poe Cemetery Tour

October 5, 2013

Rob Velella as Poe

In the works of Edgar Allan Poe, the dead do not often stay dead. Perhaps it is appropriate, then, that the author himself is coming back to life this October for his third annual reading tour at historic cemeteries throughout the northeast. Poe, portrayed by literary historian Rob Velella, will appear at historic cemeteries in four states to read from his works, including both prose and poetry, well-known works and obscure ones. Each reading will be unique. Audiences will also have the opportunity to talk with Poe and learn more about his life and works.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged for both the matinee and evening performances.
