Literature matters. The incredibly diverse history of this country can be accessed, interpreted, illuminated, shared, through the literatures created by its writers, and one of the reasons why I am passionate about AWM is that all of this can be available to people who may not have been in the habit of reading——as well, perhaps unanticipatedly, some visitor/s may  be encouraged to write his or her own stories,  broadening and deepening the American conversation
