One of Mr. Jefferson‘s University’s most famous alumni is being honored by his home of Boston, Mass. with a square named in his honor. During his lifetime, Edgar Allen Poe‘s dislike for his hometown was such that he often lied about where he was from. Boston, for its part seems to be trying to strengthen the link, going so far as to naming the month of January E.A.P. month.

The Virginia Film Society is hosting a viewing of the classic film House of Usher starring Vincent Price based on Edgar Allen Poe’s classic short story. Click here for details and ticket info.
