Nearly 170 years after his death, the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe still dwells in Baltimore. What is it about Poe that makes him so popular today? And why is Baltimore so integral to his legacy? These are the questions that will explore in this free tour led by senior Samantha Smart.
Participants will begin by visiting the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum; Poe's one-time home as a young poet. From there, stop by Westminster Burying Ground--Poe's final Baltimore residence. We will pay a visit to a very popular Baltimore Raven. The last stop will be a meal at the Baltimore classic; Annabel Lee Tavern. Along the way, attendees will learn about Poe's life and work, and take photographs documenting their own views of Poe's Baltimore.
Dinner and admissions fees are included with registration, thanks to an Arts Innovation Grant. Participants are encouraged to bring a camera or phone, and an appetite for a fun learning experience.
The first 20 confirmed registrants will be notified on Wednesday, April 11, with information about where to meet. People on the waiting list will be notified of any additional availability on Thursday, April 12.
