Cannery Row Day: Virtual Tours

Cannery Row Day: Virtual Tours

This year is the 75th anniversary of the publication of Steinbeck’s masterpiece, Cannery Row. This little novel, written immediately after Steinbeck returned from working as a journalist overseas during World War II, captures life in 1930s Monterey as well as the ecological vision of Steinbeck and his friend Edward F. Ricketts. Cannery Row celebrates community; Steinbeck’s model was the intertidal.


8:00 am 

Reading of Cannery Row by Taelen Thomas and friends. The reading will be streamed on YouTube. No advanced registration required.

Virtual Tours will take place on Zoom.
