Poe Park Visitor Center to Offer Live Readings in Honor of Edgar Allan Poe's Birthday, 1/11
Come celebrate Edgar Allan Poe's birthday at the Poe Park Visitor Center with live readings of his best-known short stories and poetry! Non-profit performance group Staten Island OutLOUD will lead readings, but all are free to join in. The event is set for Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Poe Park Visitor Center will be holding a series of events in January to celebrate the 205th anniversary of the famous American poet's birth. Poe Park is named for Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849), who lived for three years in a white farmhouse on the property. The Farmhouse, now called Poe Cottage, is adjacent to the Visitor Center.
Staten Island OutLOUD is a grassroots performance project that organizes readings of world classics, historical texts, and other compelling works across New York City.
The event is FREE and open to the public. All ages are welcome.
