The estimated 17,500 American museums embrace the panoply of creative and artistic expression ─ save for the pantheon of America’s great writers. And though not as lengthy as the literary traditions of other cultures, American literature is as rich and enduring as any in the canon. America’s great writers deserve a museum equal to their contribution to the world’s cultural tapestry.
I enthusiastically support the efforts to place a national writers museum in Chicago. Such a museum will complement the rich offerings of the City’s theatres, museums, libraries and musical activities and adds significantly to Chicago’s vitality.
This is an exciting and important project that all writers should support.
