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 America exhibition marks a starting point to spark a national conversation on books and their importance in Americans’ lives. This exhibition prefaced the September 2012 National Book Festival held on the National Mall September 22–23, 2012.
