For today’s Throwback Thursday photo challenge we asked fans, What is this book? And yes…it was definitely made into a movie.


If you guessed The Grapes of Wrath, you were right!

Most everyone has read The Grapes of Wrath, but not many people remember it from their high school required reading list. It was written by John Steinbeck and published in 1939. Steinbeck not only won the National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize for this novel, but in 1962 he was awarded with the Nobel Prize!

If you had the misfortune of attending a school where this book was not in the curriculum, or you’ve just plum forgot the whole thing, go check out this American realism classic about a family migrating west during The Great Depression. Or, just watch the movie starring Henry Fonda.
