Bust of John Steinbeck
Stop here for a moment by the bronze bust of John Steinbeck by sculptress C. W. Brown. There's also a photo on your screen now of him if you'd like to see.
John was born in 1902 in Salinas, California. With much of his 33 literary works set in central California, he is a beloved local author. The plaque on the bust is a portion of the opening paragraph from his 1945 novel Cannery Row. We will read the plaque on the bust when we return to this spot at the end of our tour.
So, with John Steinbeck’s bust behind you, turn right and walk straight along Cannery Row past Sly McFly's Refueling Station.
