TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Two Alabama literary groups are teaming up to launch an Alabama Writers Hall of Fame expected to be housed at the University of Alabama.

Reports say the Alabama Center for the Book and the Alabama Writers' Forum are collaborating on the project aimed at promoting the state's literary history.

Alabama Writers' Forum Director Jeanie Thompson says the groups have been working on the idea for about two years. The Alabama Writers Hall of Fame is expected to be housed in the University of Alabama's Gorgas Library.

The groups are assembling a list of potential inductees and suggestions from the public are being accepted.
