Please join me next Saturday, August 11, from 1:30-3:30 at Poe Cottage in the Bronx for a wonderful program on speculative poetry entitled “Poe’s Heirs.” Joining me will be fabulous writers Sara Cleto, Brittany Warman, C.S.E. Cooney and Carlos Hernandez. We’ll start off discussing speculative poetry, then each poet will read samples of their works. We’ll finish up with a Q&A session plus selling and signing of books. I’ll have THE BONE-JOINER and EURYDICE SINGS with me, as well as a few copies of Rebecca Buchanan’s DAME EVERGREEN and Other Poems of Myth, Magic & Madness, just out from Sycorax Press, and a few other books that might interest lovers of Poe.
The program will take place in the educational center adjacent to the cottage. If you’ve never visited the cottage–it’s beautiful and touching (especially if, like me, you love Edgar A. Poe)–you might want to stop in there first, as it closes at 4:00 and our program ends at 3:30. The cottage opens at 10 and, as it’s small, you don’t need to give yourself more than perhaps an hour to see it. Admission tothe cottage is $5; $3 for students and seniors.
