  1. Oh, I was intrigued by “A dream within a dream,” the tribute to Edgar Allan Poe, one of my favorite poets/writers of all time. But I searched your Website for this poem (which I assume IS a poem), but could not find it. Where can one find it? Or how is it available?

  2. Oh, Angel, I just now realized… The event itself was named A Dream within a Dream. It featured several local poets either reading from Poe or reading poetry inspired by him.

  3. I was interested on information about you reading to students in the valley on a particular date (Haunted Valley) during the evening. Please get back to me when you can
