Past Event

The Ghosts of Edgar Allan Poe

A Road Scholar Program by Brian (Fox) Ellis

Spend a spine-tingling evening in the parlor of Edgar Allan Poe as played by Brian "Fox" Ellis. Poe recounts the tormented true tales of his life and how they led to his classic tales of terror. Do not look away as the father of the horror story reveals the darkness that lurks in us all, journeying into the catacombs of our basest fears. Hear "The Raven" and "The Tell-Tale Heart" as well as lesser known work that has inspired generations of writers, writers that have dared to follow in his daunting footsteps.

This event is Free and Open to the public. For more information, please contact Janna Overstreet, 217.581.5114.
