If you can’t attend, or you’d just like to read more of Poe’s work, your University Library can help! An author search of the Library Catalog for Poe, Edgar Allan will result in a long list of available works, including many that are online. If you like to listen to your scary tales, check out Closed on account of rabies (1st-Floor Media Center, Compact Discs, PS2603 .W56 1997), 2 horror-filled discs of people whose names you might recognize reading Poe’s works, such as everyone’s favorite scary/creepy guy Christopher Walken reading Raven and Iggy Pop reading the Tell-Tale Heart. I’ve got goose bumps already!
