Back in May, and again in September, CMLE sent an email to our K-12 members advertising an opportunity to attend free events on the St. Cloud State campus. Last week one of those events took place. The “Ghost of Edgar Allan Poe” visited the campus and 250 high school students were able to enjoy stories about Poe’s life. The actor, Brian Ellis, also recited a few of Poe’s most famous works like The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven. The students even jumped in their seats when Fortunato screamed during the re-telling of The Cask of Amontillado.
A special “Thank You” to Dean Mark Vargas and the St. Cloud State Library for providing this free event and collaborating with CMLE to make it available to the schools in our region.
