American Writers Museum Chicago highlights

There's something for every reader too, with galleries dedicated to children's literature, famous Chicago authors and more. You'll also get the chance to learn all about the writing process at the 'in the mind of a writer' exhibition. Whether it's pages of prose or a simple, short sentence you'll get an insight into the process, craft and daily discipline.

It's not all writing displays, either. There are plenty of hands-on, interactive exhibits and multi-touch tables where you can explore and learn more about the authors.
