"Edgar Allan Poe's Providence Revival"
Edgar Allan Poe died on this day in 1849 (163 years ago). He had quite a few thoughts about death; here’s one of them: “The boundaries between life and death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where one ends and where the other begins?” To honor the legendary author, Carl L. Johnson and Christian Henry Tobler will host “Edgar Allan Poe’s Providence Revival,” with readings from his work and a walking tour to Saint John’s Cemetery, taking note of Poe points of interest along the way. Meet outside the Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit St, at 2 pm | Free
