Google celebrates John Steinbeck's birthday
Google is celebrating what would have been John Steinbeck’s 112th birthday by highlighting some of his most popular works in its homepage Doodle today.
Click anywhere on the drawing, and you’ll be taken to images depicting some of the Steinbeck’s most iconic books. Five in all, the set includes The Grapes of Wrath, Cannery Row, Of Mice and Men, The Pearl, and Travels with Charley. (Oddly, East of Eden was left off the list.) After arriving at the image, users can then click anywhere on the picture to summon a famous quote from the story, which appears over the drawing.
Steinbeck authored 27 books over his lifetime, and received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author passed away in 1968.
