Poe House Presents Author Series has moved online! Join us every second Sunday of the month as we present Maryland authors for live readings of selected excerpts from Poe's short stories or poems, presentations of the author's own written works, followed by author-led Q&A discussion.

Cherrie Amour will read Poe's poem, "The Lake," then read from her poetry memoir, Free to Be Me, Poems on Love, Life and Relationships and her second yet-to-be-published poetry manuscript, In My Skin (working title.) All sessions are led online by a live author and museum docent via the Zoom conferencing platform. This series is offered on a Pay-What-You-Can basis. All proceeds benefit the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, to help keep Poe's chamber door open to visitors.
