I'll be speaking about Edgar Allan Poe and his Philadelphian Literary Legacy tomorrow night at Camden County College in New Jersey, as part of a Thursday night series they're hosting for Poe's Bicentennial. Last week's lecture by long-time CCC prof Robert Lorenzi was excellent. And I'm especially looking forward to Grover Silcox's performance in a few weeks. Here's the schedule:
● March 5 – “Poe’s Ambiguous Narrators: Reliable or Unreliable?” with Robert Lorenzi, professor emeritus, Camden County College.
● March 12 – “The Great Poe Debate: Burial in Baltimore or Philly?” with Ed Pettit, Poe scholar and Philadelphia journalist.
● March 26 – “Reliving Poe Through His Literary Works” with Liliane Weissberg, professor, University of Pennsylvania.
● April 2 – “Edgar Allan Poe and the Flip Side of Comedy” with Grover Silcox, comedian and broadcast personality.
● April 9 – “Seeing is Believing: Meet Edgar Allan Poe” with Karl Babij, Poe impersonator
All events are free and open to the public and take place at Camden County College's Blackwoodcampus at 7PM in Civic Hall (in the new Connector Building), except for Silcox. His show is in the CIM Auditorium.
