For those keeping score: this is book #26, week #25
A little info on John Steinbeck and his work:
John Steinbeck was born in California in 1902. After some time at Stanford University (without earning a degree), he worked as a laborer and a journalist. His first novel was Cup of Gold (1929), but he didn’t achieve popular success until Tortilla Flat (1935). He often championed the downtrodden, the indigent, and the everyman. Injustice was a major theme in his work. He also, at times, obsessed with fate. His best known books include: Of Mice and Men (1937), The Grapes of Wrath (1939), Cannery Row (1945), The Pearl (1937), East of Eden (1952), the travelogue Travels with Charley: In Search of America, and the posthumously released The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights (1976). In 1962, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Steinbeck passed away in 1968.
The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge is a fundraiser for RAINN.org (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network). I challenged myself to read 50 books in 1 year (6/1/18 to 6/1/19). I’m asking folks to sponsor me by pledging a $ amount per book I read. Sponsors don’t have to pay anything until after the Challenge finishes (6/1/19).
