Information

Award Description
The Library of Congress, the worlds largest repository of knowledge and information, began a multiyear Celebration of the Book with an exhibition on Books That Shaped America. The initial books in the exhibition are included here. This list is a starting point, said Librarian of Congress James H. Billington. It is not a register of the best American books  although many of them fit that description. Rather, the list is intended to spark a national conversation on books written by Americans that have influenced our lives, whether they appear on this initial list or not.
