‘Sex, Lies, and Edgar Allen Poe’

Edgar Allan Poe Tonight’s event, marking the bicentennial of Poe’s birth and his doomed, romantic sojourns in Providence, is nearly sold out. Any remaining tickets must be purchased by calling Sandy Markley at 401.421.6970.  The event will feature dramatic readings from Poe — as well as Providence poet, Sarah Helen Whitman —  an exhibit of rare Poe printed matter, food and drink, and haunting music by Alec K. Redfearn, the hardest-working man in show business. (Is it my imagination or is he everywhere these days?) The dress code is ‘raven-hued’. And go for that look of tormented dissipation. Be pale.

7pm to 9pm, Friday, tickets $75, The Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street
