    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Edgar Allan Poe rises for this FREE reading at the Monroeville Public Library. Poe, portrayed by literary historian Rob Velella, will read a combination of Poe's well-known and lesser-known works with a special emphasis on poems in honor of National Poetry Month. Poe will also explain his reasons for writing the way he did and take questions from those in attendance. Photographs welcome.

 

Rob Velella is an independent literary historian and playwright specializing in American literature of the 19th century. As a scholar, Velella has published articles and presented academic papers on figures as varied as Margaret Fuller, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Walt Whitman. Nicknamed the “Prometheus of American literary scholarship,” he has taken his research outside of academia by lecturing at various historical sites, libraries, and colleges from Pennsylvania to Maine. In his ongoing efforts to bring the writers of yesterday back to the readers of today, he has dramatically brought to life literary figures Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe, for which he has been featured on National Public Radio and in the Los Angeles Review of Books.

Readers Theater is a fun way for a group to perform a play -- without the need for memorizing lines! We meet once a month to read aloud with expression from some of our favorite plays. No memorization, no props, no costumes, no sets. No sweat!
