The Library’s new collection of Washington’s books will be the largest ever, with more than 2 million copies in print, according to the Library.
The collection is a collaboration between the Library of American Letters and the Library in London, which has already published a number of his books.
“We’re delighted to be able to add this exciting and valuable collection of the author’s works to the collection at the Library,” said John C. Cogan, President and CEO of the Library, in a statement.
“Harold Washington was a visionary and a true master of the craft.
His work inspired countless generations of writers, artists, and storytellers, including a generation of Americans who today shape our nation’s national life.
He remains the epitome of a writer who had a profound impact on us and whose life has shaped our nation.”
In addition to “A Journey to Wounds,” Washington wrote several short stories and stories for children’s magazines and the children’s magazine and was the author, along with his wife, of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures Of Pip, of a children’s series that has become an American classic.
“In our long tradition of offering free access to the works of authors who shaped our world and who inspired our youth, the Library’s collection of his work will be an extraordinary addition to our collection,” Cogan added.
The new collection is being curated by Barbara J. Schulz, President of the Booksellers Association of America.
“There is no greater honor than to share the books of our beloved and enduring author with the world,” Schulz said in a press release.
“His books were the catalyst for a new age of exploration, creativity, and invention.
His stories were a beacon of hope for millions of children across the globe.”
