Iowa storyteller Darrin Crow will bring Gothic horror master Edgar Allen Poe to life through his performance of stories and poems.

“Morbid Curiosities – An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe, will be presented by Crow at the Winterset Public Library on Tuesday, Oct. 15, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Portraying Edgar Allen Poe, classic horror will be conveyed in the telling of “The Masque of the Red Death”, “The Raven”, and the “Tell Tale Heart”. The performance will also feature one of Poe’s comedies, “The Angel of the Odd,’’ a cautionary tale about the dangers of drinking too much.

Poe’s powerful writing and Crow’s masterful storytelling combine to create a memorable evening sure to keep the audience at the edge of their seats.

Telling stories since he was in high school, Darrin Crow crafts stories that deliver exactly what the listeners need. Whether in a classroom, museums, festivals, art fairs, or ancient Greek amphitheater.

Making his home in Cedar Rapids, Crow lives with his wife, three children, and two cats.
