On August 26, 7 PM: Forget
James Joyce and Bloomsday!
It's time for Poe and DOOMSDAY!
Set a reminder:
Starting at 7 PM on August 26 on YouTube, and going on for 24 straight hours, you'll be able to watch a live stream of the first annual marathon reading of the works of Edgar Allan Poe -- all to benefit The National Edgar Allan Poe Theatre, and to fund our first-ever LIVE theatrical production, “Edgar Allan Poe’s Blood, Sweat and Fears.”
Set a reminder today to log onto YouTube on August 26 to watch (and hear) the marathon by clicking here:
We’ve set up a GoFundMe page for donations. You can contribute by clicking the box at the top of the page or here:
A dedicated group of Poe fans and actors will endure a grueling 24-hour marathon of reading from Poe's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination," non-stop. We are committed to showing everyone how important the works of Poe are to literature, culture and education.
Your tax-deductible donation will help the talented actors and technical staff bringing this show to the stage. It helps us with other important projects, such as using the works of Poe to help with English literacy in schools.
Come watch and hear this first-ever annual event, beginning 7 PM on August 26!
