Friends, I am so excited to share this with you and invite you to celebrate my birthday with me this weekend! Last August my dear friend Melanie hosted a big birthday buddy read, and that was such a fun experience for me so it’s been on my mind subconsciously for awhile but I honestly wasn’t planning on doing anything unless the right idea came along. And goodness, did it!
I was chatting with the wonderful Bex and for some reason I told her that I share my birthday with one of my favorite authors Edgar Allan Poe. (Hopefully I don’t end up dying destitute in a gutter.) We then got to talking about how much we adore Poe and how I haven’t cracked open my Complete Works for at least a decade… And then I got an idea about how I wanted to share my birthday with my bookish family: the #poeathon!>
