He digs dead poets, you dig?

Amateur poet Walter Skold, a former teacher who founded the Dead Poets Society of America in 2008 is on a 15,000 mile mission to create a Dead Poets Remembrance Day.

The new holiday is scheduled for October 7th, the date Edgar Allan Poe died. To properly commemorate and celebrate some of the most laudable (deceased) American poets, Skold is rolling through 22 states with a documentary camera in tow, and will be in Charleston on May 13th with Marjory Wentworth (not deceased), poet laureate of South Carolina, and The Poetry Society of South Carolina.
