I've updated the Philly Poe Events to include Grover Silcox's shows this month. Grover was the hilarious emcee for the Great Poe Debate we had at the Free Library of Philadelphia last January (if you missed that one you can head to Boston on Dec 17 where I'll again be taking on all comers, alas, without Grover). Grover has for years done shows about Poe. I'm hoping to make it to the Mutter Museum on Oct 30.
The Tell-Tale Heart with Grover Silcox at the FONTHILL MUSEUM in Doylestown, PA. Come and tour the Henry Mercer castle and enjoy an eeire night tour. You'll learn about Mr. Mercer's interest in literature, especially, the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The program concludes with a dramatic telling of Poe's THE TELL-TALE HEART by popular actor, Grover Silcox. Friday, October 23 at 6:30-7:30PM $15/$12 BCHS members.
