“Superstitious terror crept by degrees into the spirit of the old Swede, and my own soul was wrapped up in silent wonder” — Edgar Allan Poe

Poe Turns 214, Poe Baltimore Turns 10!

New beginnings are always "dreamy." And 2023 is truly a dream come true for our Board and Staff as Poe Baltimore celebrates its tenth year as stewards of The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum. Beginning this month we will share pages from our Poe House Yearbook, highlighting some of our best memories of the past decade even as we look ahead to exciting events and programs in the New Year.

Besides, January is always thrilling in Poe-land: (un)Happy Birthday to Edgar Allan Poe! Festivities will kick-off in Baltimore on January 19th for our Poe Birthday Celebration & Poe Toaster Murder Mystery at Westminster Hall. Stay for the Poe Mystery Weekend at The Lord Baltimore Hotel, or travel with me to other "Poe Places" in New York and Richmond as we celebrate Poe's 214th: our Poe Death Exhibit will be part of the weekend celebrations in both cities and we'll even be streaming live from The Poe Cottage on Saturday to share a toast to Poe! We look forward to seeing you at these Poe events--and of course, Poe House!--very soon. Read our newsletter to learn more!

Yours in Poe,

Enrica Jang
Director, Poe Baltimore

P.S. Call for entries for the 2023 Saturday 'Visiter' Awards opens at midnight, January 19!
