The Frazier History Museum knows—the </span>museum<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> has been bringing Poe's work to life during the Halloween season for four years now, adapting a total of 16 different stories and poems for the stage in intimate shows that tend to sell out early.</span></p><p>This year, alongside perennial favorites "The Raven" and "The Bells," the three-person cast will reprise their adaptation of the creepy monologue "The Tell-Tale Heart" as well as tackle some new material. The short stories "MS Found in a Bottle" and "The Fall of the House of Usher" will join "Annabel Lee" and "Dreamland" to round out the program.</p><p> Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:42:51 +0000 Erin Keane 7264 at http://wfpl.org Frazier History Museum's Popular Poe Program Peers Into the Tell-Tale Heart Author Re-imagines Poe Story as Steampunk Thriller http://wfpl.org/post/author-re-imagines-poe-story-steampunk-thriller <p><span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17); line-height: 22px; ">In Louisville author Bethany Griffin&rsquo;s young adult novel &ldquo;Masque of the Red Death,&rdquo; a plague has ravished Araby Worth&rsquo;s city.
