The estimated 17,500 American museums embrace the panoply of creative and artistic expression ─ save for the pantheon of America’s great writers. And though not as lengthy as the literary traditions of other cultures, American literature is as rich and enduring as any in the canon. America’s great writers deserve a museum equal to their contribution to the world’s cultural tapestry.
