John enrolled here mainly to please his parents but in 1925, after six years of on-and-off schooling, decided to leave (without a degree) to pursue his passion for writing.

This humourous novel was Steinbeck's first successful work and made possible other great works such as Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men.

John Steinbeck died of heart disease in his home in New York after forever changing the world's view on literature.

Salinas, CA would later become the inspiration for many of Steinbeck's works depicting the lives and hardships of people during the Great Depression.
