THIS EVENT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS because of the people listed here that made donations to cover the expenses! We had standing room only and the area of the catacombs that we used was standing room only! Thank you again for your generous support! See you in January for the Poe Birthday Celebration!




THIS UNIQUE EVENT WILL BE held in the creepy, dark and foreboding Westminster Catacombs! This is the first time ever that any kind of event like this will be held among the dead in this type of setting!

This event was a huge success! The catacombs was packed with living people who enjoyed this unique tribute to Poe! Sometime in November we start planning for the Poe Birthday Celebration and as soon as a date is decided upon I'll post it on the Edgar Allan Poe: Evermore facebook page.
Edgar and Virginia.

I've been getting inquires on what stories will be presented at this event. Please note we are not presenting entire stories! We are presenting excerpts from his most favorite tales of horror and one or two comedies thrown in for good measure! The stories include: The Tell Tale Heart (of course!), The Black Cat, The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, The Oval Portrait, The Pit and the Pendulum, Hop Frog, The Masque of the Red Death, The Fall of the House of Usher and many more! The poems will include: The Raven (of course!), Annabel Lee, Alone, The Conqueror Worm, Eldorado and several more! We are going to "tease" you with the excerpt and hopefully encourage you to read the entire tale.

We are still seeking funds up to midnight, Sunday, October 9th. Any funds collected above the goal amount will be used for the January Poe Birthday event!

If just 12 people donate $25 each we will be okay and all the expenses will be paid!

Thank you for any consideration and there will be one more update before Saturday.

Hello Poe Friends! We are getting down to the wire! We've had an unexpected expense occur and we had to raise our goal by $300. Please remember that GoFundMe gets a percentage of the amount of funds we collect. For those of you who've made a donation I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

If you haven't made a donation yet please consider helping us out by making a much needed donation. If only 12 people made a donation of $25 each we would meet our goal! If you don't like to donate on-line please feel free to send your donation by mail to: Jeff Jerome, PO Box 1226, Severna Park, Md. 21146.

If you wish to remain anonymous that's fine with me.

This promises to be a unique tribute and one worthy of Poe.

Thank you so much for your consideration!

Cordially,

Jeff Jerome
Curator Emeritus, Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum

I have been told on the highest authority that Edgar Allan Poe and his beloved (yet deceased) wife Virginia Clemm Poe (from the immersive play A Dream Within A Dream: Madness, that is running through Oct. 31st in Old Town Alexandria, VA) will be making a surprise appearance at "Poe is Dead." They are expected to be joined by at least two raven dancers from the award winning production. I don't see how Poe and Virginia could miss this event in Poe's honor.
