Poe Events Around the US

October seems to be national Edgar Allan Poe month. Here’s a short sampling of the many series, events, etc., that are taking place to commemorate the Poe bicentennial.

A Dream Within a Dream: Works of Mystery and Imagination
Shelbourne Falls, MA

The Poe Studies Association’s Third International Edgar Allan Poe Conference
Philadelphia, PA

From Out That Shadow: The Life and Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe

UT-Austin also has a very nice Edgar Allan Poe Digital Collection of drawings, sheet music (Poe poems made into songs), manuscripts, and other documents.

And don’t miss Baltimore’s Edgar Allan Poe Funeral Events!
