Books That Shaped America

In The Library of Congress Jefferson Building is a new exhibit called Books That Shaped America. Over the lunch hour we quickly walked through it following a presentation we saw in the Middle Eastern Section. There are original copies of several favorites, including Gone With The Wind and To Kill a Mockingbird. It is my understanding that the public has an opportunity to voice their opinion and vote for the books they feel had the most impact on them personally or collectively. If you have a chance to see the exhibit, you won't be disappointed. Every time I walk through this magnificent building, it is hard to believe that we can visit it just about any time. As you can imagine, the exhibits are always changing and the subject matter appeals to a lot of folks. I never had this kind of opportunity in previous work places. I can't imagine a lot of others who do.
