The Grapes of Wrath

From Michele Lauer-Bader
author: Steinbeck, John
The grapes of wrath
The Grapes of Wrath should be read twice; once while in high school or college and again later in life, when hopefully experience has taught something.  Steinbeck wrote the story during the depression and its portrayal of poverty, migrant workers, and poor treatment of the laborer still holds true today. Some in my discussion group thought it was depressing. While it was hardly upbeat, I couldn’t get over how the themes of family above all and persistance resonated. This is a great story and a great discussion book.  Don’t miss the movie with Henry Fonda!
