Philadelphia embraces the history of the city and the historical figures who once called it home through events and educational discussions. The Poe House will have a Purloined Poetry Discussion on April 22nd that will cover Poe’s plagiarism allegation against H.W. Longfellow.
Past Poe events in Philadelphia include the Poe Arts Festival that took place in October of 2016 and the Poe House’s Women’s History Month tour that occurred earlier in March. To stay up-to-date on all of the Poe happenings in Philadelphia, bookmark the Edgar Allan Poe National Park Service’s page and the events page on The Free Library’s website.

A huge thank you to the immensely helpful Rangers Cosgrove and Schillizzi who provided us with enough information to write ten pages of notes. A shout out also goes to the lovely folks at the Rare Books Department at The Free Library of Philadelphia for their assistance.
