Area residents are invited to watch an Edgar Allan Poe impersonator read works penned by the well-known 19th-century writer at Gore Place on Saturday. Waltham native and literary historian Rob Velella will step into the character of Poe while reading aloud macabre stories by the Boston-born author, including “The Fall of the House of Usher’’ and “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,’’ according to event planners. Performances will be held in the Great Hall at Gore Place, the historic estate of former governor Christopher Gore, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Admission is $12, or $10 for Gore Place members. The event is not recommended for anyone under 16 years old, officials said. For more information, call 781-894-2798 or visit the museum’s website, www.goreplace.org.
