January 19 was the 200th anniversary of the birth of Edgar Allan Poe, one of the best known American authors. In honor of this event we’ve put together a display including books, poems, facsimiles of his writing–even a copy of the Poe postage stamp issued this year. Stop by and discover something new or reread an old favorite. Then you can decide if, like Poe said, “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”
