Supported by a “Big Read” grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Poe-tober is a month-long series of events celebrating the works of Edgar Allan Poe. On Wednesday, anthropologist and TEDx speaker Dr. Dana Walrath presents “Comics, Medicine and Healing Through Story,” illustrated by Poe’s struggles with mental illness and addiction. On Thursday, the Georgia Museum of Art will offer a Family Gallery and Poetry Event, and the ACC Library will host spooky stories for adults during “Return of the Son of Listening in the Dark.” Poe-tober culminates on Tuesday with a poetry reading by Kimiko Hahn, with introductory remarks by Consul General of Japan Takashi Shinozuka.
