It is said that John Steinbeck was most prolific during his apprenticeship in Pacific Grove. He managed to write "The Pastures of Heaven," "To a God Unknown," Tortilla Flat," and began the classic "Of Mice and Men," all within a few years. According to Dr. Susan Shillinglaw, Steinbeck "loved Pacific Grove, a town where he could immerse himself in his writing." To celebrate the beloved author's 110th birthday, the Pacific Grove Library will feature a reading of Steinbeck's works by local actor, Keith Decker. The reading will be followed by "Steinbeck's Epicenter: Pacific Grove," a lecture by English Professor, Dr. Susan Shillinglaw. This event is free and refreshments will be served. [EP]
