Poe and Murder & Mayhem on Staten Island

Murder and Mayhem on Staten Island Comes to Life! Historian Patricia M. Salmon discusses her new book "Murder and Mayhem on Staten Island", published by The History Press, twelve grisly Staten Island murders, from 1843 through the Jazz Age, are featured. Ms. Salmon's book tells the story of "That Most Wicked and Wretched Woman" Polly Bodine, who stood trial three times for the murder of her sister-in-law and niece, and was then accused of arson for setting the cottage that held their dead bodies on fire! Edgar Allan Poe covered the Bodine trial as a young crime writer. Some critics say that the Bodine case inspired Poe's pioneering detective fiction. We will discuss Poe's writing in "The Mystery of Marie Roget:, as it relates to Polly Bodine. This event is co-sponsored by Staten Island OutLOUD and the History Department of Wagner College.

Poe Birthday Preview & Tour of Poe Cottage

Staten Island OutLOUD has been invited back to Poe Park, to present a Poe Birthday Preview - a week before Poe's Jan 19 birthday. We'll enjoy readings, art projects for kids, and a tour of the charming cottage in which Poe lived (from 1846-49) with his wife Virginia and her mother Maria Clemm. Although those years were a time of sadness for Poe (Virginia died of TB there), it was also a very productive time for his work as a writer. While he lived in the cottage, Poe created "The Bells", "Ulalue", Eureka, The Domain of Arnheim & Landor's Cottage, among several other works. OutLOUD's program runs from 2:30-4pm; guests can make individual plans to tour the Poe Cottage, which is managed by the Bronx County Historical Society.
