The Other Night School: The Poetry of Nevermore 6:00-7:30 p.m.-- The Carnegie Hosts The Other Night School by The University of West Georgia School of the Arts.The Raven is Edgar Allan Poe's most beloved poem, but it is also one of the most misunderstood works in American literature, a trait it shares with Poe himself--whose life is all too often portrayed as a horrifying caricature removed from what we really know about the man. Can reading The Raven help us discover the real Poe? Join us for an evening of haunted elegies and POEtic fun, Halloween style. Reception begins at 6:00 p.m. with talk starting at 6:30 p.m. For more information about The Other Night School please visit https://www.westga.edu/academics/coah/sota/featured-events.php. *Registration is required for this program.* Please call 770-683-1347 or register online https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-poetry-of-nevermore-edgar-allan-poe-and-the-raven-tickets-49617800176.

Art Demo with Peggi Kroll Roberts 7:00-9:00 p.m.-- The Carnegie Library is proud to host The Blackwell Prize Winner and Newnan Art Rez artist-in-residence, Peggi Kroll Roberts, for an art demonstration. The Blackwell Prize recognizes an artist of high achievement in plein air/observational painting, drawing or related two-dimensional medium. Peggi Kroll Roberts, was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before making the transition into fine art. Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it. Seating is limited for this program and registration is required. Please register by calling 770-683-1347 or online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/art-demo-with-peggi-kroll-roberts-tickets-50926148481.
