Big Read in 2010 to feature works by Poe

July 04, 2009

The Community Foundation of Washington County has been chosen by the National Endowment for the Arts to bring a third Big Read to Washington County.

In April 2010, the county will host a month-long celebration of the works of Edgar Allen Poe, whose ties to Maryland made his writings a natural choice.

In previous Big Reads, the event has featured "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee and F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby."

Preliminary program planning is under way.

For more information, contact Kristy Smith, program manager, Community Foundation of Washington County, at 301-745-5210.
