Definitely Sherlock's creator, Donna, and Harry S Truman and Mark Twain, two of my favorite Missourians, and Eleanore Roosevelt and Dr. Sam Johnson of dictionary fame.

I think you should invite Steve Allen, who created the PBS show "Meeting of the Minds." I think he'd be a great addition to any dinner party.

Harriet Tubman and Abraham Lincoln

Donna Andrews, so very excited to see something about Van Loon's Lives! It was a beloved book of my history-geek teen years, and I tracked down a copy on ABE some time ago.It is, still, wonderfully imaginative and opinionated and touching and pure fun. I sometimes re-read a chapter just to relax.I thought about it when I saw mosaics of Theodora in Ravenna and when I went to Amsterdam a few years ago.I guess it made a permanent impact, as the right book at the right moment will do.
