Halloween Outdoor Reading of Poe's Raven

Every Halloween we hold an outdoor reading of Edgar Allen Poe's chilling short story The Raven.

Why? Are you kidding? It's Halloween and this story begs to be read aloud with a crowd!

We take turns reading different parts of the story and the setting among candlelight adds to the spooky flavor of Poe's words.

The reading has become a tradition in the Brookland neighborhood in Northeast Washington. Hope you consider having a similar reading in your neighborhood too.
