Meet Edgar Allan Poe at Hagaman Memorial Library! A Live Dramatic Performance by Actor Campbell Harmon

East Haven: Meet Edgar Allan Poe at the Hagaman Memorial Library, 227 Main Street, on Saturday, November 6 at 2:00 p.m.! This program contains dramatic performances of The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven. Actor Campbell Harmon speaks in-character as Poe with the audience about the author's life, his death, and his profound influence on American literature; dispelling the myths that have surrounded his legacy to show how his works continue to affect us today. 

This great writer is brought to life by actor Campbell Harmon in dramatic readings, historical biography, and direct audience interaction.

Edgar Allan Poe was the first American writer to attempt to support himself solely on writing alone. He wrote the first modern detective story, the first modern science fiction story, and founded the modern horror genre. His famous, tragic love for his wife, Virginia, helped to inspire his landmark poem, The Raven. Speculation over the cause of his mysterious death in 1849 continues to this day. His writings still speak to us more than 160 years later and have inspired countless stage and film adaptations.

Campbell Harmon has performed as Edgar Allan Poe since 2009. He has brought the Master of the Macabre to life for audiences across America. Harmon has worked with libraries, schools, and the National Endowment for the Arts to further historical education and spark a love of reading in young and old alike. Harmon is a displaced Kentuckian and graduate of Yale Divinity School. He lives in Wallingford, Connecticut in a 120 year-old house with a 102lb dog.
