With all of the hubbub and hullabaloo about the George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art planning to open in Chicago, last week’s announcement finalizing the plans for the American Writers Museum got lost in the media fog. The good news is that the nation’s first institution dedicated to American writers will open in downtown Chicago in early 2017.

Located across from Millennium Park on North Michigan Avenue, the purpose-built museum will feature rotating exhibitions on wide ranging literary topics such as: rare books, the Beat Poets, censorship, characters in novels, the immigrant experience, book arts, ethnic literature, and much more.

Books are the plane and the train, and the road. They are destination, and the journey. They are home.

Anna Quindlen, “How Reading Changed My Life”
