As part of National Library Week, April 13-18, 2014, Trexler has created an exhibit of books that are on the Library of Congress list of the most influential titles that helped shape America,
We all bring a different set of experiences to a book, and those experiences shape how we react to what we read. The Books that Shaped American list marks a starting point—a way to spark a national conversation on books and their importance in Americans’ lives, and, indeed, in shaping our nation.
The titles featured here, all by American authors, have had a profound effect on American life, but they are by no means the only influential ones.
What book(s) would you suggest we should add to the exhibit?
Fill out this form http://desales.libguides.com/survey.php?survey_id=12613 and we will add your title(s) to the list. If we own the book(s), we will include it in the display.
