Bracken Library Celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the John Steinbeck Collection
“Dedication to Steinbeck: The 1976 Exhibit Revisited” marks the 30th anniversary of the dedication of the John Steinbeck Collection. The collection was dedicated on March 26, 1976, as one of the events celebrating the new A.M. Bracken Library. The Steinbeck event included an exhibition of first editions, translations, photographs, galley proofs, movie posters, and other Steinbeck items. The current exhibit “revisits” 1976 by reproducing much of that exhibition and displaying photographs and items from the dedication. Some more recent additions to the collection are also included. “Dedication to Steinbeck” continues through May 31 on Bracken Library’s Second Floor West.
