Kansas City Library’s Epic Parking Garage

The most epic of parking garages is located in the downtown Kansas City area. “The Community Bookshelf” features giant-sized spines of several great books including Joseph Heller‘s Catch-22, Plato‘s Republic, Ray Bradbury‘s Fahrenheit 451, Ralph Ellison‘s Invisible Man, and E.B. White‘s Charlotte’s Web.

According to the official website: “It runs along the south wall of the Central Library’s parking garage on 10th Street between Wyandotte Street and Baltimore Avenue. The book spines, which measure approximately 25 feet by 9 feet, are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests as suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees.”

Answer this: If you had to pick an epic book worthy of a giant manifestation, which one would it be? For this GalleyCat correspondent it would be Mitch Albom‘s Tuesdays with Morrie because it made me cry giant tears.
