According to Business Insider, the most famous book that takes place in Minnesota is one that I haven't read. But I'm going to read it now.

No big surprise that it's a book by Sinclair Lewis, who was born just down the road in Sauk Centre. "Main Street" shows us two sides of Minnesota.  A thriving St. Paul, where the main character in the story is from. And a small town filled with narrow-minded people.

I thought Laura Ingalls Wilder might win for most famous book taking place in Minnesota, but Wisconsin gave her the win. I guess because she was born there, and the Ingalls family lived in many places.

My pick would have been Garrison Keillor for "Lake Wobegon Days."
