Baltimore's Love of Poe

Oct 4, 2018

Baltimore’s love of Edgar Allan Poe is no secret. Close to the date of Poe’s death, Marylanders visit Poe’s gravesite to celebrate the writer’s life and work. The free event, called “Poe is Dead,” includes performances, a reading, a wreath-laying ceremony, and more. Jeff Jerome, the man behind the event and the former curator of the Poe House, tells us more about the event and his love of Poe.
