The Grapes of Wrath and the Great Depression    NEW!

John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath is the quintessential novel of the depression era of the 1930s. In this class, we will read the novel in conjunction with news articles and documentaries that explore the dustbowl of the Midwest and the plight of the migrant workers. We will also look at how the novel was received—including its banning and burning in Kern County, California.
