“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.” — Edgar Allan Poe

Poe Fest Int’l Is Here!

It's the eve of The International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards, and our volunteers, Board and staff have a lot to do to get the festival grounds ready for this two-day event! Please pardon us as we close Poe House early Friday, October 4 at 12 NOON, to get ready for the attendees soon to converge on Poe House. Poe Fest Int'l begins Saturday, October 5, at 11AM!
