The Pit and the Pendulum with Alan Sklar

October 3 from 7 to 8pm

Join the library for a reading of the horror classic, The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allen Poe.

The Pit and the Pendulum, first published in 1842, is the story of the torments endured by a prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, though Poe skews historical facts. The narrator eloquently describes his experience of being tortured. The story is especially effective at inspiring fear in the reader or listener because of its heavy focus on the senses, such as sound, emphasizing its reality, unlike many of Poe’s stories which feature the supernatural.  This program takes place on Zoom and registration is required. To register visit This program is presented in collaboration with the Dobbs Ferry, Harrison, and Tuckahoe Public Libraries.
