Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck - September Book Club Discussion

Many of us read fiction like writers, so this group is especially attuned to aspiring writers who want to know more about the craft of writing. The books we chose are all available in paperback and can be found at the library in print or audio.  This month's book:

Today, nearly forty years after his death, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck remains one of America’s greatest writers and cultural figures. Over the next year, his many works published as black-spine Penguin Classics for the first time and will feature eye-catching, newly commissioned art.

Of this initial group of six titles, The Grapes of Wrath is in a new edition with a completely revised introduction and, for the first time, detailed notes by leading Steinbeck scholar Robert DeMott.

Penguin Classics is proud to present these seminal works to a new generation of readers—and to the many who revisit them again and again.

    What a fabulous time we had this morning discussing the timeless classic, "The Grapes of Wrath." This discussion about the Joad family and the Depression made us link those hard times to the hard times many of us are facing today. Thanks to everyone who came and participated!
