HENNING, Tenn. (AP) — The Alex Haley Museum and Interpretive Center in Henning has been designated a Literary Landmark.

The designation was made by United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association.

To celebrate the honor, the museum is hosting a ceremony on Saturday at 3 p.m. It will also honor the late Alex Haley.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Roots would have been 93 on August 11th.

The center is only the second Literary Landmark in Tennessee. The first was the Cossitt Library in Memphis honoring famed author Richard Wright in 1998.
