Poet and master of terror Edgar Allen Poe is being honored Friday on a new commemorative postage stamp.
Ceremonies marking the issuance of the 42-cent stamp are scheduled at the Library of Virginia in Richmond, the city where Poe was raised following the death of his parents.
A member of the post office’s board of governors, Katherine C. Tobin, says it’s ironic that Poe is loved by so many so long after his death when he faced loneliness, poverty and despair throughout much of his life.
