One of the Larchmont Public Library's own will be bringing "Edgar Allan Poe" back from the dead for a reading of his works.
Frank Connelly, a reference librarian at LPL, will be channeling Poe at 7 p.m. Monday, October 28.
Connelly had been scheduled to appear as Poe last year, but a little thing called Superstorm Sandy got in the way.
According to library spokesman Geoff Colquitt, "Never one to shy away from a challenge, Connelly will once again don his frock coat and present himself as the conduit for one of the most famous writers or the macabre the world has ever known."
"With just a bit of luck, and if Poe's spirit is in a good mood, perhaps the performance will come off without the visitation of a natural disaster," he said.
Among the works Connelly will perform are The Cask of Amontillado, The Masque of the Red Death, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven.
The Larchmont Public Library is located at 121 Larchmont Ave.
