A national museum in Chicago exploring American writers and the power of their words would enormously enrich the city’s diverse museum landscape. Those of us whose main task it is to instill within the museum visitors an active and probing interest in nature and culture can only respond to the plans of a writers museum:  This is the right thing to do!
