“Journeys – Steinbeck Around the World”

Thursday, August 5th – Sunday, August 8th
“We do not take a trip. A trip takes us.” –John Steinbeck

This coming weekend, set out for the open road.
Your destination: The world – today and at key moments in history, with John Steinbeck as your guide. Eat, drink, and dream of far horizons. Go behind the Iron Curtain in the 1960s and wander through Moscow, Krakow, Budapest. Stand at the Berlin Wall. Visit Rome, Paris, and Mexico. See literary landmarks around the globe. Drive through the Badlands of North Dakota with a poodle just like Steinbeck did 50 years ago. Create your own journey.

The National Steinbeck Center unveils its 2010 Steinbeck Festival, Journeys: Steinbeck Around the World, to be held from August 5 – 8, 2010 . The festival will explore journeys of all kinds, throughout America and the wide world, through the eyes of John Steinbeck and others. Each year, hundreds of people from all walks of life attend the annual four-day festival, which includes talks, tours, film and the visual and performing arts.

I will have a photo workshop for high school students and a large fine art print photography exhibit, as well as a 20 minute film on display during the festival weekend and continuing until the end of the year. See you there!
