Vote Ann Patchett for Time's 100 Most Influential People List

Posted By on Thu, Mar 29, 2012 at 4:03 PM

Hey, we sure talk about Ann Patchett a lot around here! (It's kind of like Ann Patchett : Country Life :: JEFF the Brotherhood : Nashville Cream.) But she just has this way of being awesome all the time — seems like just yesterday she was stopping a pro-Amazon Colbert dead in his tracks — and we can hardly hold that against her.

The latest: She's up for inclusion in Time magazine's list of most influential people in the world. In the world. The folks at Time praise her "singular ability to write smart literary novels that are also big best sellers."

Check out the whole list of nominees here. (Does anyone else think it's weird/kind of offensive that Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks and January Jones are one entry?) You can vouch for Patchett here — voting ends April 6 — and do so knowing that it's entirely possible Ryan Seacrest and Rick Santorum could end up on this list if decent people don't rise up and click on "definitely" for someone who writes books and is not hateful and insane. Do it!
