From Interesting Literature: Five Fascinating Facts about John Steinbeck

Click Five Fascinating Facts about John Steinbeck to read some fascinating facts about John Steinbeck.  Number 5 should be of special interest to my friend Jayde Ashe-Thomas of The Paperbook Collective.  She is a fan of author Thom Steinbeck, John Steinbeck’s son (read one of her posts here) and, of course, John Steinbeck himself (he’s her “homeboy“)   🙂

    Steinbeck sounds like he had a very good head on his shoulder. Thanks for sharing this find with us. 🙂

  4. I remember when I first arrived in Salinas — it was a magical experience for me. I actually own a 1937 copy (not a first edition, but certainly an early printing) of Of Mice and Men.
