HarperCollins Classics That Have Helped Shape America

The Library of Congress recently selected 88 books that they feel have shaped America as we know it. In a statement, they explain that the list "Is not a register of the ‘best’ American books--although many of them fit that description," but rather contains important books “written by Americans that have influenced our lives.” While every book on the list has played an important role in American history, we were exceptionally excited to see so many of our HarperCollins classics represented, including:
We invite you to explore the complete list, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on our titles represented. You also might be interested in exploring our Harper Perennial Modern Classics digital catalog, featuring the above titles, and more.
