LYNN CULLEN

THURSDAY, MAY 8; 7 PM

LYNN CULLEN, author of The Creation of Eve and Reign of Madness, will introduce her newest book, Mrs. Poe, rich with historical details of New York society and its mores in 1845. Edgar Allen Poe is at the height of his poetic genius and greatly revered by his readers. A budding poet, Frances Osgood, makes his acquaintance, thinking it will help her literary career. Little does she suspect that it will lead to a flirtation, then a seduction, and then an illicit affair which will pit her against Edgar’s frail wife Virginia. The three of them become involved in a macabre relationship that is as dark and twisted as one of Poe’s tales. It makes for fascinating reading! GALLERY BOOKS
