It’s John Steinbeck’s 112th birthday! If you haven’t seen it yet, today’s Google doodle marks the occasion with illustrations of a bunch of his books, including Grapes of Wrath, which, in case you didn’t know, a lot of us are reading for the very first time

So, first of all, happy birthday Steinbeck!

And, secondly, a reminder to our fellow GOW book clubbers: We’ll be gathering on Monkey See on Monday, March 3, at 3pm EST to talk about the book’s first 10 chapters. (Turtles, rabbits, cotton fields and a lot of deep thoughts about human nature!)
