In St. Paul, the city that raised F. Scott Fitzgerald, and in Minnesota, that state that gave voice to writers from Sinclair Lewis and O. E. Rolvaag to Louise Erdrich and Tim O’Brien, we instinctively understand the need for an American Writers Museum. Our writers define us as Minnesotans and Americans, reminding us who we have been and helping us talk about who we are. We urge everyone to support the effort to keep these writers alive and in front of the public through an American Writers Museum.
Christopher B. Coleman, Mayor, St. Paul, Minnesota
