Great Minds

Limited edition Literati experience curated by a diverse mix of today's thought leaders

It's one of the most intimate questions you can ask someone: What books inspire you? We decided to ask some of the country's best and brightest: CEOs, scientists, comedians, philanthropists, bestselling authors and more. It isn't a stretch to imagine the children's books they shared with us shaping them into the remarkable people they are today.

All new subscribers will receive the Great Minds experience as their first shipment.

The Great Minds experience includes aspirational inscriptions written by our guest curators to children, which can be peeled off and placed inside books. Award-winning illustrator Isabelle Arsenault created original artwork for a large format art print, personalized bookplates as well as a personalized letter for each child. Each box also comes with the Great Minds booklet detailing every children’s book chosen across all clubs.
