Books contain keystones. They speak through their words, their covers, their pages, and their history. The American Writers Museum will enshrine these objects and their gloriously individual creators. It will be a National Gallery of the mind; a meeting place of the American spirit; and an ongoing carnival of our capacious verbal heritage. As a lifelong reader and collector of American books, I look forward to the realization of this much-needed enterprise.
-Robert Jackson, Collector and Scholar
