Classics Book Discussion: “East of Eden” by John Steinbeck on Zoom Monday, October 26 at 3:00 p.m. Pick up your book curbside!

In his journal, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck called East of Eden “the first book,” and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California’s Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families—the Trasks and the Hamiltons—whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. Click here to read more about East of Eden.
