C-SPAN2 BookTV's Peter Slen interviewed AWM founder Malcolm O'Hagan at their Washington, D.C. studios this week. Segments of the interview will air multiple times beginning as early as this weekend. This was a follow-up to an interview that aired more than a year ago. We've come such a long way since then in our quest to establish the first national museum devoted to American writers, and O'Hagan's on-air conversation with Slen provides a delightful progress report. View the segment on Book TV (it won't air for a few more days), or look for a link to the interview at the AWM website next week.
