Last week, I spent a few days at Eastern New Mexico University in Roswell, NM talking about Edgar Allan Poe. Taught two classes and then gave a lecture open to any and all. The students were very responsive in both classes and 25-30 people turned out for the talk, always an encouraging sign. I never get tired of learning how many people out there still read and enjoy Poe’s works. Even the professors at ENMU were a little surprised by the Poethusiasm.
Thanks so much to Professor Daniel Wolkow who invited me and the students and teachers who attended.
