The National Steinbeck Center is a wonderful look into the life of the amazing author John Steinbeck.  There are 3 rooms where you can experience the literature and history, agriculture and art of John Steinbeck’s hometown.  There are a number of hands-on exhibits which thoroughly entertained the little ones and seven themed theaters showcasing a variety of readings and movies.

I love John Steinbeck novels – we have a few gathering dust on our bookshelves.   One in particular that I remember reading in school called Of Mice and Men.  Now that we have visited the Steinbeck Center I will be having Jay read it this year.  I picked up another Steinbeck book to add to our collection today called Cannery Row.   I thought that very fitting seeing as we are living in that area now.

When I was in college I house sat for a college prof- his father was one of Steinbecks editors, so I got to see some of his original manuscripts that they just had laying around the house. I asked if they had ever had them appraised- they said, Nah. Sheesh! Probably worth tons of money. Looks like a cool place to visit!

Love John Steinbeck. Of Mice and Men left a huge impact on me after reading it in school.
