On May 6, 1940, John Steinbeck is awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his novel, the Grapes of Wrath. The Grapes of Wrath is about a fictional family from Oklahoma who lose their family farm. They move to California in search of a better life. They face many difficulties as they spiral down into poverty. I think of it as the quintessential novel of the Great Depression. The Novel also won the National Book Award. It was also an award winning film starring Henry Fonda.
