An Evening of Mystery and the Macabre with Edgar Allan Poe

A Fundraiser for The Free Library of New Hope & Solebury


If you love classic American literature AND festive Halloween shenanigans, you won’t want to miss our fall fundraiser. Read on for details about this captivating event, which will nevermore be seen in our New Hope and Solebury community!
  • Join us on Thursday, October 19, from 6–8 p.m. If you dare!
  • Our event is hosted by the haunted Logan Inn and will take place in the Logan’s lower-level theater.
  • Mr. Poe will share a half-hour reading of his favorite works, followed by a Q & A. Mr. Poe’s appearance is made possible by the generosity of Tricia and Scott Reines. Thank you!
  • A cash bar and complimentary savory snack will be available.
  • Experience tarot card readings by Kristine Gorman. Kristine will offer short tarot card readings during the event.
Come dressed as a literary character! Every guest who comes in costume as a literary character will be entered into a drawing for a door prize. Here’s your chance to channel your inner Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, Jo March or Offred!
Tickets are $50 per person and are now available at the library or online. Tickets are limited, so be sure to get yours as soon as ticket sales open.
