A Guide to Literature From Wasilla, Alaska has created an unusual category in the book world, one without a BISAC subject code: Wasilla Lit, that is, books by and about the Alaska town that is the hometown of Governor Sarah Palin, Republican nominee for Vice President.

AbeBooks wrote: "Forget about that Sarah Palin book banning controversy, this tiny town is a publishing powerhouse . . . well, perhaps not a powerhouse but it certainly leads the way in books about hunting.
