Back by popular demand, Anne Williams returns to perform a selection of dramatic readings of Poe’s famous poems and short stories.  This event is usually held in our parlor but due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, it will be held on our brick patio this year.  Dress appropriately for the weather. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs to help ensure social distancing. We will have some chairs available as well.
