Poe & Poets Reading Series
2PM – 3PM
Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum
203 N Amity St, Baltimore
What could be better than an intimate reading of Poe in the room he likely used as his bedroom? How about being a guest reader, and get free admission to the museum that day? Click the ticket link (above) to preregister as a reader, or simply arrive on time to enjoy the special intimate experience that happens each month.
