On this week's show, Fordham Conversations host Kyle McKee talks with historian Angel Hernandez about the legendary gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe.  While Poe is known for his poems and short stories like The RavenThe Tell Tale Heart, Anabelle Lee, and The Bells, few may realize his deep connection to New York City, and especially the Bronx.  Angel Hernandez is the Director of Programs and External Affairs at the Bronx County Historical Society.  He joins the show to talk about Poe’s writing, life, legacy, as well as Bronx History.
