Establishing a national institution that will celebrate American writing is an inspired idea. The American Writers Museum will honor the achievements of more than 300 years of American writing. Through its programs, exhibitions, public readings, and film presentations, the museum will kindle a new appreciation of our literature and deepen our understanding of American writers.
Thomas F. Staley, former Director, Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin
