As part of the "Month of the Macabre" celebration, students may look forward to a sighting of the famous author and poet, Edgar Allen Poe.

Immediately following the Poe appearance, we will host a poetry reading and film screening open to all students. 

Selections of Poe's poetry will be recited and read by members of the ASUN faculty, and there will be a showing of the film, An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe, which contains four short films dramatizing some of Poe's most famous works. Refreshments will be provided free of charge for students to enjoy. If you have class during that afternoon, you may ask your instructor for permission to attend this school-sponsored cultural event. All students and faculty are cordially invited to attend.
