What Would Your Writers’ Museum Look Like?
October 10, 2011 § Leave a comment
In my book, A Skeptic’s Guide To Writers’ Houses, I discuss some of the difficulties inherent in creating visual displays in honor of written texts. Now I can put my money where my mouth is. The American Writers’ Museum is a nascent group working on creating the first-ever museum to American writers per se. Their efforts are gaining steam.
I’ve had some convos with the organizers, and now they are soliciting suggestions from anyone with two cents on what the future museum should look like, contain, display. Manuscripts or reconstructors? Computer displays or first editions? And what about the gift shop?
