A Classic Critical Anthology on John Steinbeck, Focused on the Nobel Prize Winner and his Home, California #steinbeck

From April to May 2007, some of the most celebrated scholars of American Literature, cultural studies, and California history joined with noted artists, performers, and photographers for a unique John Steinbeck celebration at San Diego State University. Homer from Salinas: John Steinbeck's Enduring Voice for California, edited by note American Studies scholar William Nericcio, collects these lectures, screenings, debates, discussions, and visual artifacts into one handy volume that unfolds as a bracing melange of old school conference proceedings, next-generation Web 2.0 journalism, and a John Steinbeck scrapbook. The collection, with an introduction by Nericcio, includes outstanding pieces by Jeffrey Charles, Charles Wollenberg, William Deverell, Francisco X. Alarcon, Hernan Moreno-Hinojosa, Pam Munoz Ryan, Paul Wong, Fred Gardaphe, Arturo J. Aldama, Michael Harper, Joanna Brooks, Arthur Ollman, Louis Hock, and Susan Shillingslaw.
