What a brilliant idea, to establish an American Writers Museum!  It is very fitting that this ambitious museum is Midwestern in its setting, and particularly in the great literary city of Chicago.  Here is a project that will be both educational and thrilling, inspiring to all who love to read and to write.   I am honored to be involved in this original enterprise and will be very intrigued by its development and the ways in which it will flourish.
Joyce Carol Oates, Author
