Steinbeck and East of Eden

Google’s Doodle today commemorates the birthday of Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning writer John Steinbeck (1902-1968).

(Images above are static, but if you go to Google you can see the interactive graphic).

Special Collections & Archives has a signed first edition of Steinbeck’s East of Eden, considered by the author to be his greatest work. Steinbeck said about Eden, “It has everything in it I have been able to learn about my craft or profession in all these years.”

This book is part of Special Collections & Archives’ Robert Giroux Collection of 20th century American writers.

Found in the Archives is a recurring series of crazy cool stuff found in the Monroe Library’s Special Collections & Archives.
