Time has released its list of “100 Most Influential People.”
A number of writers have been included in this illustrious group such as young adult novelist John Green, nonfiction author Barbara Brown Taylor, memoirist Malala Yousafzai, novelist Arundhati Roy, and Pulitzer Prize winner Donna Tartt. Yousafzai actually makes two appearances because she contributed a short piece honoring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Shailene Woodley, the actress who stars in both The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent, penned the essay praising Green as both an “author and teen whisperer.” Ann Patchett, novelist and co-owner of the Parnassus Books store, wrote the entry for Tartt and dubbed her “the author whose characters’ lives change our own.” Which writers would you have selected for this list?
