Edgar A. Poe: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

October 27, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday, October 27, 2018 • 1:oopm – 5:00 pm

This lecture will explore the myths, legends, and utter lies surrounding Poe’s career, his personal life, and his death. We will also attempt to answer the greatest question of all: why do we continue to believe the lies?

Sponsored by the Collings-Knight Homestead, the lecture will be given by the writer/ producer/ director of the popular play “Shades of Poe”, Patty Verzella.

The lecture is broken down into three portions, and each portion will be approximately 30 minutes, with a short break after each for questions, refreshments, and to explore our venue: the historic Collings-Knight Homestead.

Due to limited seating, please be sure to reserve your tickets in advance. If we have demand which exceeds our capacity, we will open another time slot.

***Tickets to this event are free for members of the Friends of the Collings-Knight House. For non-members, we are asking for a donation, sort of a “pay what you wish” so that we can continue to bring you wonderful educational programs like this one.***

Accessibility Disclaimer: This performance does not require standing or walking around, but the homestead does have a short set of stairs to enter the house.
