The American Writers Museum, 180 N. Michigan Ave., celebrates refugee and immigrant writers with its newest exhibit, "My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today," which explores the influence of modern immigrant and refugee writing on our culture, history and daily lives.

The exhibit—which opens Nov. 21 and runs through May 2021—is designed to elicit thoughtful dialogue on issues relating to the modern refugee crisis and the perception of immigrants in our country today.

"My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today" features more than 30 authors who will delve into questions about writing influences, being multilingual, community, family and what it means to be American.

American Writers Museum is the first museum solely devoted to celebrating U.S. writers and their works. It is a 501( c )( 3 ) not-for-profit organization and is open seven days a week. Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, and free for children ages 12 and under. Visit AmericanWritersMuseum.org or call 312-374-8790 for more information.
