The winner of the National Book Award, Pulitzer, Nobel Prize and master of both the sweeping epics “Grapes of Wrath” and “East of Eden,” plus the poignant and comedic novellas “Of Mice and Men” and “Cannery Row,” Steinbeck championed the working class and downtrodden. A dozen films and stage plays were based on his work. With photos, stories, and excerpts from "East of Eden” and “Cannery Row,” lecturer James Dalessandro brings alive one of America’s greatest writers.
