About this event:

Created by Poe Baltimore

203 N. Amity St. Baltimore, MD 21223

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.


Mary K. Tilghman will read from Poe’s short story, “MS Found in a Bottle,” then share excerpts from her novel, Divided Loyalties.

Mary K. Tilghman, a Maryland native, has spent 40 years writing for local newspapers and magazines. In addition, she wrote six editions of Frommer’s travel guide for Maryland and Delaware and one edition of the Insider’s Guide to Baltimore. Her first novel Divided Loyalties was published in 2017. Set in Boonsboro, during the Civil War, it follows an Irish immigrant as she sacrifices family, friends and comfort to serve as a battlefield nurse. The novel was cited in CBSBaltimore’s “Five Baltimore Authors To Put On Your Summer Reading List.” It also received Four Roses in a Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous review. Her second novel, another historical fiction set in 1783 Annapolis, as well as a prequel to Divided Loyalty set at Christmas are finished and more are on the way.
She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Maryland Romance Writers and the Historical Novel Society. Mary and her husband Ray have three grown children.
