OF MICE AND MEN - Part 1 Saturday, January 28th at NOON pst

"A few miles south of Soledad, the Salinas River drops in close to the hillside bank and runs deep and green. The water is warm too, for it has slipped twinkling over the yellow sands in the sunlight before reaching the narrow pool."

Seanchai Library presents John Steinbeck's original novella text, live in voice. Join us at the central fire circle area located in the heart of the Steinbeck Ranch, as we meet George Milton Lennie Small - two "bindle stiffs" (itinerant farm workers) with desperate dreams of a better life where they will "live off the fatta the land."

"We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us. We don’t have to sit-in no bar room blowin’ in our jack jus’ because we got no place else to go. If them other guys gets in jail they can rot for all anybody gives a damn. But not us.”

Corwyn Allen, Kayden Oconnell, and Caledonia Skytower, live in voice.
NOTE: Original text includes some language appropriate to the time and place for which the story was written - including racial slurs and cursing. Part 1 of 3.
