About the Books

Ayn Rand’s novels contain many elements that appeal strongly to young readers. They are inspiring and exciting stories, with heroic characters fighting for their ideals.

The novels portray events with profound and timeless significance, challenging readers to decide not just what will happen to particular characters, but what their own lives and the world should be like.


A perfect addition to any unit on English dystopian literature, Rand’s novella Anthem offers students a unique opportunity to reflect on how living in a totalitarian society would impact life as an individual. With its short length and poetic style, Anthem is accessible even to 7th graders, but can be studied in greater depth up to the college level.

We the Living

The Fountainhead

The Fountainhead deals with enduring themes of individualism, not in politics, but in the personal choices one makes about their work and relationships with others. The protagonist, Howard Roark, is an ambitious architect who is expelled from university, yet endeavors to achieve his unique vision against a mass of social opposition. The idealism in the story provides students with the inspiration and guidance they need as they begin their adult lives. It challenges students to reflect about their own futures and presents the kind of perspective that will give them courage for every step of the way.
