The Grateful Dead celebrates 50 years since the band's start this year.
John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes Of Wrath” was published 75 years ago this month. The epic work tells the story of Oklahoma farmers migrating to California after the dust bowl of the 1930s.
It won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. To mark the anniversary, there’s a beautiful new special edition of the book, published with the original cover painting and the original notes on the book flap.
Literary critic Steve Almond says of Steinbeck, “this guy, literally in the crucible of his artistic subconscious, I think, produced the great American novel.” Almond joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss “The Grapes of Wrath.”
