Happy Birthday John Steinbeck!

Here’s a birthday shout out to John Steinbeck, who was born on February 27, 1902.  Steinbeck was a famous American writer widely known for the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Grapes of Wrath (1939) and the novella Of Mice and Men (1937).  Both were transformed into critically acclaimed feature films later on.  The Buena Park Library District’s catalog has a wide variety of Steinbeck material here.

And though Steinbeck died on December 20, 1968, his legacy lives on at the National Steinbeck Center and the John Steinbeck exhibit at The California Museum.
