In conjunction with the exhibition Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing, January’s featured Read the West Book Club selection is the American classic The Grapes of Wrath. Published in 1939 by John Steinbeck, it evokes the harshness of the Great Depression and arouses sympathy for the struggles of migrant farmworkers. The story traces the migration of an Oklahoma Dust Bowl family to California and their subsequent hardships.
