Thank you so much to the 8th grade students from Franklin Middle School in the Springfield Public Schools - District 186, inspired after seeing our production of "Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe" at the UIS Performing Arts Center last month.

These drawings were created as part of an activity in the study guide created for this production. The activity asked students to select a piece of text from one of the four Poe stories depicted in the play and draw the images that came to mind.
