The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck, is a common reading assignment in California high schools. The Joad family travels from the dustbowl of Oklahoma to California, with dreams of a better place, finding instead more hard times. Steinbeck's book has always been praised for its realism, and that realism earned him enemies in many places in California. This press release from Kern County shows people are finally forgiving him for perceived sins.
