The Poe Museum is pleased to welcome local author, Rachel Beanland, as the next speaker in our Illumination Series! Beanland will read from her newest novel, The House Is On Fire, discuss her work, take questions, and sign copies of The House Is On Fire at the end of the evening!


Rachel Beanland is the author of two novels, The House Is On Fire (Simon & Schuster, 2023) and Florence Adler Swims Forever (Simon & Schuster, 2020).

The House Is On Fire, which came out in April, was selected as an Indie Next pick by the American Booksellers Association, a ‘GMA Buzz Pick’ by Good Morning America, and a “most anticipated” book by the Washington Post, E! News, and other outlets.
