Since the phenomenal success of the Lovecraft bust which was placed in the author's hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, Bryan Moore, the founder of the project, has the opportunity to do it again with the city of Poe's birth, Boston, Massachusetts. The new Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds to place a sculpted bronze bust of Edgar Allan Poe in the Boston Public Library on October 30, 2014!
Check out the great video which explains the project, and shows the beautiful Boston Library where the Bronze Poe bust will reside.
Poe Forevermore is a proud sponsor of the project! You can find some of our goodies in the donation levels, including a subscription to Poe Forevermore Magazine and a copy of the up-coming 10-Disc CD set ALONE: THE LIFE OF POE, a dramatized audio book of the life of Egar Allan Poe.
