This Week in Reading March 4 - 10

This week's authors include everything from a Nobel prizewinner to a pulp mystery writer but the biggest theme is biography.

Answer to last week's questions: John Steinbeck. The Grapes of Wrath was the first book chosen for California in 2004 for the Library of Congress One Book program. He married his first wife, Carol, at the Glendale Courthouse as they lived in Eagle Rock. In 1932-1933 they rented a home in Montrose briefly as he lectured at Occidental.

This Week's Question: Who said, "Those big shot writers could never dig the fact that there are more salted peanuts consumed than caviar"?
