Group visit to Center for Steinbeck Studies
Submitted By Shirley Gilbert
On Wednesday, December 14, from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m., AAUW Fremont Branch will host a tour to the Center for Steinbeck Studies located in the Martin Luther King Jr. Library, 150 San Fernando Street (across from 4th Street) in San Jose. Founded in 1973, the Center is now the largest Steinbeck archive in the world.
The visit is part of a year-long program to promote the reading of this year's One Book, One Community choice of The Grapes of Wrath by Pulitzer and Nobel prize winning author John Steinbeck. The Center's archivist, Peter Van Coutren, will lead the tour and pass along fascinating information about the book and Steinbeck's life.
One Book, One Community, a collaboration among AAUW Fremont Branch, Fremont Main Library and the Fremont Unified School District, is in its fourth year. There is no charge for this outing and the public is invited to attend.
