25 Influential Books

On Monday, Kathleen Dunn (host on WPR) chatted with Rosemary Ahern, freelance writer and book editor. Her recent article, “The 25 most Influential Books of the Past 25 years” (March-April “Mental_Floss” magazine).

These lists pop up from time to time, and made me wonder what librarians around Wisconsin thought. And then I wondered what you would put on the list? What about a children's list? Teen list?

This could also be a fun project to do with your patrons. Have them submit titles and then later vote on those titles to see what makes the list (and possibly why). Instant display idea, too!
