CHRISTIAN SCIENCE TEXTBOOK ON LIST OF INFLUENTIAL BOOKS

The Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, has been included on a list of "75 Books by Women Whose Words Have Changed the World," compiled by the Women's National Book Association (WNBA).

Mary Baker Eddy was the founder of this newspaper.

The list was compiled from nominations by members of the WNBA, a professional association for those involved in books and publishing, which marks its 75th anniversary this year. The list was then reviewed by an expert panel.

The 75 books range from Jane Addams's "Twenty Years at Hull House" through Virginia Woolf's "A Room of One's Own." Also included are such volumes of the women's movement canon as Betty Friedan's "The Feminine Mystique" and Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex"; milestone works of scholarship (Margaret Mead's "Coming of Age in Samoa," Barbara Tuchman's "A Distant Mirror"); literary classics (George Eliot's "Middlemarch" and Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"); contemporary works of fiction (Alice Walker' s "The Color Purple"); memoirs by Helen Keller, Golda Meir, Emma Goldman, Emmeline Pankhurst, Beryl Markham, and others; as well as Fannie Farmer's "The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book."
