Poe's imaginative storytelling and tales of mystery and horror gave birth to the modern detective story. Many of Poe’s works, including “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Fall of the House of Usher,” and "The Raven," became literary classics. Some aspects of Poe’s life, like his literature, is shrouded in mystery, and the lines between fact and fiction have been blurred substantially since his death.

This is a free, one-day event for high school women to learn about careers that require creative problem solving, encourage forward thinking, and make a difference in society. If you are interested in attending this workshop, please see Mr. Klang for more information and a parental permission form which must be turned in to him or Mrs. Plonka by Thursday, January 28. Word of the Day: Bellicose bel-i-kohs adj. Hostile in manner or temperament.
