Written by Adam Vorobok, Reference Librarian, Downtown Main Library
Legends say he had a bear as a pet. He published his first set of verses at the age of 17, only for them to be burned by public outcry. And historians debate if he would have been made King of Greece had he not perished from a fever in 1824 at age 36.
This month, Warlock Vorobok emerges from the void to read "The Prisoner of Chillon" and "Darkness" by a larger than life poet, Lord Byron.
