Common sentiment to feel a bit beleaguered after the mad season of the holidays and return to work and school. But beleaguered is bread and butter for us, Poe Nation. Plus there's little time to feel weary as January is jam-packed with events as we close in on celebrations for Edgar Allan Poe's 215th Birthday!
- Poe Baltimore and the NSA's National Cryptologic Museum present The Death of the Poe Toaster Murder Mystery & Birthday Celebration at Westminster Hall, January 19
- Call for entries for the 2024 Saturday 'Visiter' Awards opens at midnight, January 19!
- Poe's Death in Baltimore Bus Tour and Poe House Tours January 20th
- Can't be in Baltimore? The Poe Museum Richmond & The Poe Cottage in NY have birthday celebrations, too!
And finally, we're very proud to kick off commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Poe House & Museum in Baltimore. Each month we'll share facts, points of interest, and hidden history of Poe House, from its savior from demolition in 1940, to the future of the museum as we look ahead to transformation and expansion. We begin with a list of great events in literary history from 1949, the first year Poe House was opened to the public--read the newsletter here!
Yours in Poe,
Director, Poe Baltimore
P.S. We're planning a "Ghastly Galentine" event at Carroll Mansion, February 13. Tickets on sale next Friday!
