The Foundation for BCPL Presents!
A Toast Among Ghosts!
The fifth annual A Toast Among Ghosts is at Reisterstown Branch on Saturday, September 28, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The historic Reisterstown Branch was formerly the Franklin Academy, where in 1831, Edgar Allan Poe applied to be the headmaster. He wasn't selected, but maybe it's time Poe returned to one of his old haunts. Poe died in Baltimore on October 7, 1849. To honor his life and legacy, we're remembering the anniversary of his death in a macabre way he'd truly appreciate...in a graveyard!
Enjoy live music by local bands Waylon K. Smith, Wanderlight and Fablelore; local food vendors; beer and wine; famed Edgar Allan Poe impersonator David Keltz (found, appropriately enough, in the graveyard); portrayals of historic Reisterstown residents; ghost stories around a fire pit and guided tours through the moonlit historic Reisterstown Community Cemetery (est. 1764).
Saturday, September 28 at 7:00pm to 10:00pm
