Come spend the weekend with Caroline!

A Literary Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

A Literary Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

Celebrate the life and times of the American writer Edgar Allan Poe on Saturday October 26, 2013 at the Caroline Country Club. The event kicks off at 6pm. Guests will be treated to a fun-filled evening of good food, entertainment, words, and wit. While not required, guests are encouraged to get into the spirit of the event (and Halloween) by dressing in period or themed attire.

An author, poet, editor, and literary critic, Poe is best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre. He was also one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story, and is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Learn all about the man and his works from guest speaker, Stacey Pounsberry, a longtime advocate for the eccentric and macabre. Ms. Pounsberry has presented research at professional conferences, won a number of writing and playwriting awards, and appeared in numerous small theatre productions throughout her career. In her spare time, she enjoys translating French poetry and prose and playing piano. She has a bachelor’s degree in English and Theatre and currently works as Writing Center Coordinator and English Instructor for Delaware Technical Community College, Terry Campus.
