CANNERY ROW

  • Ryerson Hub Cafeteria

    Ryerson University, Toronto, ON (map)

    43.657860 -79.380394

  • A grocer, a marine biologist and various derelicts interact on a street full of sardine canneries in 1930s Monterey in northern California.

    John Steinbeck's 1945 novel is remarkably realistic and was the basis for the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical PIPE DREAM.  He based Cannery Row on Monterey's Ocean View Avenue:  in a case of life imitating art, the street was renamed Cannery Row!

    This will be the first Classic Book Club event of 1917, so I will be asking for $5.00 annual dues.  These dues will cover the whole year in Reading Out Loud Toronto, the Classic Book Club, and the History Discussion Group.
