The Raven (A BIG READ PROGRAM)
Baltimore, 1849. While investigating a horrific double murder, police detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the killer's methods mirror the twisted writings of Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack). Suspecting Poe at first, Fields ultimately enlists his help to stop future attacks. But in this deadly game of cat and mouse, the stakes are raised with each gruesome slaying as the pair races to catch a madman before he brings every one of Poe's shocking stories to chilling life...and death.
