About the Book:
Set amidst the atmospheric world of New York's literati in 1845, Mrs. Poe is a compelling novel about a female poet who becomes dangerously entangled in an affair with Edgar Allan Poe. Based on historical facts linking Edgar Allan Poe to a contemporary poet named Frances Sargent Osgood, Cullen’s new book is the reimagining of Poe’s relationship with Osgood, at the height of Poe’s literary fame following the publication of “The Raven.” And to put us all in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe, the event will include a dramatic reading of "The Raven" and other Poe poems, performed by an actor from the Chronos Theatre Group.
