This program is presented in partnership with the Office of 55+ Programs at the Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation.

Edgar Allan Poe died in 1849, but there have been alleged sightings of his ghost and claims that he continued to write beyond his death. Christopher Semtner, curator of the Edgar Allan Poe Museum and author of "Haunting Poe: His Afterlife in Richmond and Beyond," explores the ghost stories and hauntings that inspired Poe’s writing and purportedly continued after his death.
