The author of the novel The House of the Rising Sun is set to visit Chicago’s former home of The Old House in the next few months.
Annabelles book The Old Room, which tells the story of the building, was adapted into a movie starring Tom Hanks in 2017.
The Chicago Public Library announced the book will be on view through February 26 at the former home’s Museum of Art.
Annabeth Warren, who is best known for her fiction novels, will be one of many people visiting the historic home, which was built in 1915.
“This historic home has been the subject of numerous public-interest and literary works, and I hope this visit will encourage readers to consider the historical context of its preservation and its relationship to Chicago’s past,” Warren said in a statement.
Warren’s other books include The First American and the book that got her famous.
“I hope readers will see the home through the eyes of its original owners, who gave the home to their children as a refuge for their illness and grief,” Warrends said.
The home, in the North Side neighborhood of Chicago, was once home to the famed Rosemont School and served as a medical hospital for the city’s homeless.
It was the first home for the homeless in the United States, according to the city.
The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The museum is also holding an event on February 26 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Rosemont school.
