‘An Evening with Poe’

Edgar Allan Poe is usually labeled as an American Romantic writer, but during October, he’s referred to as Gothic. No wonder; many of his stories and poems are about hauntings, horrific deaths and terror, all perfect tie-ins to Halloween. The Frazier has brought back its popular “An Evening with Poe.” There will be readings from “The Raven” and “The Masque of the Red Death,” accompanied by the live music of the Tamerlane Trio. Your “Tell-Tale Heart” will not be saying “nevermore.”
