Literary Historian Rob Velella will portray himself as Edgar Allen Poe.  Through his interactive role with the audience, we will begin to understand the man “Poe” himself.  Mr. Velella offers these words” The problem with classic literature today is many people assume it’s too boring or too difficult.  My goal is to prove them wrong.”

The program will be held at the Grafton Historical Society (71 Main Street, South Grafton) at 2pm on Sunday, October 14th.  There is a $10 suggested donation for attending.
This program is sponsored by the Grafton Historical Society and the Grafton Public Library.
Refreshments will be served.
