About this event:
Attention reading lovers: Poe House’s popular Poe & Poets live poetry readings have expanded to include prose authors! Introducing a new author series from Poe Baltimore in partnership with Maryland Writers’ Association: Poe House Presents. Join us the second Sunday of each month as we welcome a new author for a reading of selected Poe stories/poems and an excerpt of their written work.
Author/illustrator, Gareth Hinds will read from Poe’s short story, “The Cask of Amontillado,” then share pages from his graphic novel adaptation of The Iliad.

His graphic novel POE: Stories and Poems got rave reviews from such venues as The Wall Street Journal. Gareth is a recipient of the Boston Public Library’s “Literary Lights for Children” award, and his books are excerpted in textbooks and used in English classrooms across the country. http://GarethHinds.com
