Edgar Allan Poe rises for this special virtual event just in time for his birthday! The author was born in Boston in 1809, the same year that Christopher Gore was serving as governor of Massachusetts. Poe himself (portrayed by literary historian Rob Velella) returns from beyond the grave to read several of his works, both well-known and forgotten. Recommended for ages 13 and up.

Tickets are $20/pp. To purchase, visit www.goreplace.org/whats-on/poe

Rob Velella is an independent literary historian and playwright specializing in American literature of the 19th century.
