Poe Event Updates

Because this is Poe's Bicenntential year there are a ton of cool events going on. Here are some if you happen to be in the Virginia area.

Museum tours are always interesting and you always learn something new, but I always fear Poe events will be a caricaturization for the amusement of the tour goers versus a more balanced picture of the actual author. Just sayin'...


  1. I have that same fear. When I used to give tours at the Poe Nat'l Historic Site in Philadelphia, I'd warn people in the first room that I don't talk about horror. Most people were surprised there was anything else to talk about.

  2. Exactly Rob. It's either that or the alcohol use...
