Book Party: The Pale Blue Eye
Join us for 19th c. snacks, background and a stimulating discussion of the book "The Pale Blue Eye" by Louis Bayard. Bayard fictionalizes Poe's stint at West Point. Filled with enigmatic clues, codes, cryptograms, and psychological suspense, the novel had most critics on the edge of their seats.
