Ticknor Society Event: Poe & Publishing

The Ticknor Society* will host a talk by independent Poe scholar Rob Velella (of Poe Calendar fame) at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, 12 May at the Boston Public Library. Velella's talk will focus on Poe's relationship with the American publishing industry.

Questions, answers, and refreshments will follow the talk. Hope to see you there!

* The Ticknor Society is a great Boston-based bibliophilic organization, which you should certainly join if you're not already a member (hint: if you join soon, you can come to the annual meeting on 2 June and hear a talk by Robert Darnton).

Not only is Rob Velella an excellent presenter, his Poe Calendar blog is the best Poe site on the net these days. He's really worth seeing. If I could be there I would.
