The Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe w/ Barry Pirro

November 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

****Location Change- now at the Senior Center for accessibility*** For the past 172 years, no one has been able to solve the mystery of Edgar Allan Poe’s death–Can you?

On the day he left Richmond, Virginia bound for Philadelphia, Poe was a happy man looking forward to a new life with his childhood sweetheart and soon to be wife, Sarah Shelton. Five days later, he was found lying in a gutter–delirious, unkempt, and wearing someone else’s clothes. His delirium continued, and he repeatedly called out a stranger’s name. Four days later, he was dead. Join paranormal investigator Barry Pirro as he discusses Poe’s life, his health and mental state, the puzzling details of his last days, and the many theories surrounding his mysterious death.

Space is limited. Please call the Library at 203-729-1441 to RSVP, or register on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-mysterious-death-of-edgar-allan-poe-w-barry-pirro-tickets-748523603247?aff=oddtdtcreator
