The Edgar Allan Poe Bicentennial

I hope you haven't forgotten that January 19 is Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday.

On January 17,
The Edgar Allan Poe National Historical Site in Philadelphia will reopen with a new exhibit in honor of the bicentennial. The celebration continues throughout the year with special events and lectures. This national park also has great resources for teachers.

The
Edgar Allan Poe House in Baltimore will have events throughout the year.

I'm going to dip back into The Great Short Works of Edgar Allan Poe and Kenneth Silverman's
Edgar A. Poe: A Biography.

Let us know what you're planning for the Poe Bicentennial.
