Steinbeck Festival Contest – Win Tickets

This year from August 7-10 in Salinas Valley, California will be the 28th annual occurrence of the Steinbeck Festival; this year’s theme is Steinbeck in Mexico.

Over a third of John Steinbeck’s work is either set in Mexico or features characters of Mexican descent. From 1932 until the mid 1950s, he wrote often about the environment, history, culture and politics of Mexico. This is some of his best work: Sea of Cortez, an environmental classic written with Edward F. Ricketts; The Pearl, a novella about aspirations of poor fishermen; Viva Zapata!, about Mexican revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata, directed by Elia Kazan. Mexican American characters appear in Tortilla Flat, Sweet Thursday, The Wayward Bus.

If you want a free pair of passes to the festival all you have to do is enter our contest.

The contest closes at 2 p.m. (PDT) on Thursday, July 24, 2008.
