“101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived” to be Discussed at Marshall Public Library

Marshall Public Library

The characters from works of fiction have left a mark on many through their exploits. Now, the Marshall Public Library is taking a look at who’s been the most powerful.

Thursday, October 6 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., the library will host author Dan Karlan for a discussion of the book he co-authored with Allan Lazar and Jeremy Salter, “The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived.”

“Some characters are a way to tell a tale on morality while others offer a chance at adventure and an escape from our day-to-day lives,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian. “King Midas, Rosie the Riveter, Barbie, Tarzan, and Dracula all share one thing in common. They never physically walked the earth but their lives are permanently etched into our conscience.”

During the talk, Karlan will explore how these characters and others have come to be so timeless and how their experiences have shaped culture around the world.

The discussion is part of the Marshall Public Library’s Literary Series and is free and open to all members of the public. If you are interested in facilitating a discussion, contact Amy Campbell at 232-1263 ext. 106 or via email at acampbell@marshallpl.org.
