About Our Project:

Spirits of both the paranormal and beverage varieties will once again haunt the Duncan LittleCreek Gallery with Ghost Light Productions’ annual Poe & Pints! Frank L. Sawyer directs Poe & Pints for the 4th time. Frank first conceived of the project in 2014. Said Sawyer, “I wanted to create an unique event for the community. I have always been a Poe fan, so the idea of combining craft beers with Poe’s work, was intriguing.” Working with DLC Managing Partner Jennifer Anderson, and local artists John Wright, Derek Burwell, and Erika Patrick, the team fleshed the project out. It’s just not October without what the Elko Daily Free Press called, “an evening of refreshingly original entertainment." We look forward to having you as our guest!

Our Author and Poet

Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston in 1809 and became the first well-known American writer, author, and poet. Poe was one of the earliest writers of the short story, considered the inventor of detective fiction, and an important contributor to the new genres of horror and science fiction. In 1845, he published his poem, The Raven, to instant success. Saturday evening’s performance marks the 168th anniversary of Poe’s death at the age of 40 in Baltimore on October 7, 1849. Edgar’s death is stoked with mystery. He vanished on his way home and was later discovered in a delusional state, muttering nonsense, and wearing clothing that was most likely not his own. Poe continues to influence literature and pop-culture around the world.

Our Guest Author

Josh Webster writes short fiction, plays and a poorly self-illustrated webcomic. He also teaches creative writing, composition, literature, and a variety of other courses under the heading of English at Great Basin College in Elko.
