An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe
October 29 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Poe Returns as… crime writer?
Edgar Allan Poe, America’s master of the macabre and original literary bad boy was also a great innovator in the fields of science fiction and mystery writing. Never one to keep life and art separate, in 1842 Poe took it upon himself to investigate the brutal murder of a beautiful woman, an unsolved case that had outraged the public and baffled police.
In addition to offering up some of his better known, bone chilling tales and poems of horror and the supernatural, this year Poe will discuss his foray into real life criminal investigation and share his experiences with the dark side of American culture and American history.
This year’s event will be held At Liberty, a new arts and culture venue inside the Historic Liberty Theater. Tickets are $20.00 with performances at 2 pm and 7 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Deschutes Historical Museum or by calling 541.389.1813.
