It's Poe-Time in Boston!

"The Raven in the Frog Pond: Edgar Allan Poe and the City of Boston," a new exhibit at the Boston Public Library, will open at 6 p.m. this Thursday, 17 December. At 7 p.m. that evening, the Boston round of the Great Poe Debate will kick off, featuring our good friend Ed "Philly Poe Guy" Pettit, BC professor Paul Lewis (curator of the exhibit) and Jeff Jerome from the Poe House in Baltimore. It'll be moderated by Charlie Pierce.

Paul Lewis does a pre-debate Q&A with Kathleen Burge in the Boston Globe.

If you can't make it to the events on Thursday evening, the exhibit will run through 31 March 2010.

I wish I could attend this one. I'd be quite curious to see just what they make of Poe's decidedly odd relationship with his birthplace.

JBD, I hope I'll finally get to meet you.
