Edgar Allan Poe

Poe
Happy 205th Birthday Edgar Allan Poe. Poe (January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) whose death is still cause for speculation after many decades, was a mystery-suspense writer whose poems and short stories still cast a shadow over our culture even today.

The Poe Museum on East Main Street in Richmond, VA is open to the public who want to lean more about Poe and his writings. The museum hosted a Birthday Bash yesterday with artists including Abigail Larson and special events.

Here is the link to some of the Poe items the museum has digitized for your perusal. and here is the Wikipedia entry of the museum. Well worth a visit.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Poe.
