Happy birthday, Mr. Poe

A big thank-you goes to the folks at Fountain Bookstore for reminding us that today is Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday. After the deaths of both his parents, young Edgar moved in with Richmonders John and Frances Allan. It gives me a little thrill to think that “America’s Shakespeare” is one of the river city’s most famous natives. Celebrate and learn more by going to The Poe Museum.

And enjoy Christopher Walken’s reading of “The Raven” shared by Fountain.
