The rich fabric of America’s literary history deserves a place like The American Writers Museum.  Rooted in the private, individual pleasure of reading, there is a compelling excitement in learning more about America’s writers in the shared, public experience of a museum.  It will be a place to meet one’s old friends—Twain, Dickinson, Frost—and make new acquaintances.  What fun that will be.
Richard Lariviere, President and CEO, The Field Museum of Natural History
