The Raven, Black Cat, & Other Haunting Tales

The Raven, Black Cat, The Tell Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, Murders in the Rue Morgue, and many, many more.  Edgar Allen Poe wrote some of the most gruesome and let's face it depressing poetry and short stories of any age.  Which makes him absolutely perfect for a program at Halloween.  Come and enjoy the works of Edgar Allen Poe during Teen Time on Monday, October 25th at 4pm.  All teens are welcome, costumes are optional and there will be many, many treats.
