The October season is in full swing at the Ogden Farmers’ Library as they welcome storytellers from the Genesee Country Village and Museum to recount Edgar Allan Poe’s most chilling tales. The program is set for October 10th at 7pm in the library meeting room.
The library has partnered with the GCV&M and their Moveable Museum Program to regale listeners with the drama of Poe’s work, as well as offer insight into the writer’s life and times. The focus of the presentation will be Poe’s famous The Tell Tale Heart but the storytellers dabble in some of his other work as well.
With the continual library goal of promoting literacy, the program sheds a spotlight on older fiction that sometimes goes unnoticed in our modern world.
“Since our media is so visceral these days, we forget how powerful Poe’s stories are,” says Patrick Montanaro, Communications and Technology Library Assistant. “These descriptions are only enhanced when a great storyteller puts force behind each and every word.”
The program will be held in the Ogden Farmers’ Library meeting room located at 269 Ogden Center Road Spencerport, NY 14559 with a start time set for 7pm. The program is recommended for anyone twelve and up but younger children accompanied by adults are welcome. Admission is free.
