August began with the (un)happy announcement of 18 nominees for the 2019 Saturday ‘Visiter’ Awards, a new honor recognizing the best artists and writers creating Poe-inspired works from around the world. Composers, video game designers, writers, filmmakers, painters and poets all made the list. Attendees at this year’s International Edgar Allan Poe Festival will get to meet the nominees, and the winners will be revealed at the Black Cat Ball at Westminster Hall October 5th! Congratulations and good luck to all our nominees!

There’s still plenty to do and share this month: our Poe House Presents Maryland author series welcomes the President of the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore, David F. Gaylin, for a special reading this coming Sunday, Aug 11.  And visitors may also join us Saturday, Aug 31, at “Will You Say That I Am Mad?”, presented at Poe’s Magic Theater in The Lord Baltimore Hotel.

Yours in Poe,
