American Writers Museum

ONWORD2020 | POSTPONED (We Have A New Date!)

EVENT POSTPONED TO September 1, 2020

Due to restrictions on public gatherings designed to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the American Writers Museum has rescheduled ONWORD2020 for September 1, 2020. We have made this difficult decision in support of the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago’s efforts to encourage social distancing. We appreciate your understanding and continued commitment to the American Writers Museum, and look forward to gathering with our generous supporters very soon.

We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued commitment to the American Writers Museum, and look forward to reconvening our generous supporters on our new date.

The American Writers Museum's mission is to celebrate the enduring influence of American writers on our history, our identity, our culture, and our daily lives.

American writing is distinctive, diverse, and comes in many forms from across the nations. As the only museum devoted to American writers and their works, AWM connects visitors with their favorite authors and writings from more than five centuries, while inspiring the discovery of new works of every type – poetry, lyrics, speeches, drama, fiction, nonfiction, journalism, and more.
