This is such a great idea. Museums make history three dimensional, and museums bring people together into that three-dimensional space to learn about and celebrate that history. This is needed for American literary history –– a communal space to celebrate our rich legacy of prose and poetry. And maybe I'm biased, but I think Chicago, home of Bellow, Brooks and Terkel, is the perfect place for such a museum. Dave Eggers, American writer, editor, and publisher
