A Visit with Edgar Allan Poe at Menlo Park Library

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Edgar Allan Poe comes back to earth—for one night only!

Join us as actor Duffy Hudson brings his Chautauqua portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe back to Menlo Park!

“In the Shadow of the Raven” begins as Edgar Allan Poe rises from the scene of his mysterious death, and continues as he pieces together the events of his life.

The performance ends with the opportunity for the audience to talk to Poe, and then to Duffy Hudson.
