Poe Events this Week (Film on Thursday)


As part of the Poe / After Poe schedule, there will be a special screening this week of a new film, Edgar Allan Poe’s Annabel Lee. This film is currently being shown only at film festivals, and we will have an opportunity to screen it before its general release. Additionally, Michael Rissi, the film’s writer and director, will be on campus for the screening. There will be a question and answer session with him scheduled earlier in the day before the film.
