The Sinclair Lewis Foundation, regrets to announce that we will not be opening or conducting tours of the Boyhood Home for the 2020 tour season, due to the “Stay At Home” order. We will keep all of our visitors and supporters updated about our status as we get them, so please check back frequently. Your support is needed now more than ever, please consider a donation so that we can continue to celebrate the life of Sinclair Lewis and continue his legacy of mentoring writers. We’re all in this together. Stay Home, Stay Safe and we’ll see you soon!
