STORIES OF EDGAR ALLAN POE
AS TOLD BY FLORA LAPHAM MACK OF DANVILLE
Thursday, September 8th, 2016 7 p.m.
Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History
 
       The program will be given by Richard Kopley, Distinguished Professor of English, Emeritus, from Penn State DuBois; author of "Edgar Allan Poe and the Dupin Mysteries"; and former president of the Poe Studies Association. Kopley will discuss stories written about Poe by Flora Lapham Mack of Danville. Mack was the step-daughter of Poe’s closest friend, John H. Mackenzie, and was privy to many tales of Poe’s life that she later wrote in letters to her distant cousin. Many of Flora’s letters are in the possession of Mr. Kopley and remain some of the richest sources on Poe’s life. 

This event is free and open to the public.  Artifact on display in our Alcove Gallery Courtesy of the Edgar Allan Poe Museum, Richmond, Virginia
