An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

Join the Reading Public Library for a dramatic performance of Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven. Renowned performer Campbell Harmon speaks in-character as Poe with the audience about the author's life, his death, and his profound influence on American literature; dispelling the myths that have surrounded his legacy to show how his works continue to affect us today. 

The program is suitable for all ages and will be held on the Library's Front Lawn. Registration is required. Due to capacity limits, each member of your group will have to have their own registration.

Please bring chairs or blankets for seating. We will have limited chairs available. This event is generously sponsored by The Friends of the Reading Library.
