“Civil war is supposed to be the bitterest of wars, and surely family politics are the most vehement and venomous. I can discuss politics coldly and analytically with strangers. That was not possible with my sisters.” —John Steinbeck

Happy ! Fun fact: Steinbeck's personal stamp featured a flying pig, "Pigasus," which reflected his view of himself as "earthbound but aspiring." We recently renamed our museum store Pigasus Bookshop as a tribute to Steinbeck's sense of humor and profound wisdom.

Today is John Steinbeck’s birthday. He’s my favorite writer, obviously. Go read one of his books or read it to your kid. His work deepened my appreciation of nature, helped me understand other people and understand myself. I’m not sure what else there is.
