Instructor Mary Engelhardt will facilitate a discussion of John Steinbeck's novel and John Ford's 1940 film adaptation, with ample time to discuss both. Steinbeck's masterpiece, The "Grapes of Wrath", is a story of human unity and love, confirming the need for cooperation rather than individualism during hard times.
Please secure and read the 455-page novel. First published in 1939, the novel takes place during America's Great Depression, from the Stock Market Crash of October 1929 to the start of World War II. A long drought and high winds impacted large parts of the American Midwest, creating what was called the Dust Bowl. Many people in the lower Midwest moved elsewhere, hoping to find fertile land on which to make a living.
