Our 2013 One Book celebration came to a close on October 29 with Ebony Reveries, an evening of music and readings celebrating Edgar Allan Poe. We’ve posted a video of the evening’s program on YouTube
Many thanks to everyone who helped make our One Book project happen, especially Professor John Allen Cann, who edited the Slender Poe Anthology
(available for purchase
or Book Club in a Box
) We’ve also heard from several of you who would like to purchase some of the posters, beer coasters and other great materials produced by our designer, Laura Koivunen. Head on over to the Public Surplus
website and have a look.
