The American Writers Museum is coming to downtown Chicago. This institution will be “dedicated to engaging the public in celebrating American writers and exploring their influence on our history, our identity, our culture and our daily lives.”
According to The Chicago Tribune, Malcolm O’Hagan founded the American Writers Museum Foundation more than three years ago.
The foundation executives plan to open the museum’s doors sometime in 2015.
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough, former United States poet laureate W.S. Merwin and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel all support the idea.
