The International Steinbeck Society will be fielding two scholarly panels at the upcoming American Literature Association Conference in Chicago from May 26–29. The first is a traditional panel titled “Reading Steinbeck in a Troubled Time,” which will feature work from  Danica Čerče, Brian Duchaney, and Jean Jaurès. The second is a roundtable titled “Steinbeck and the Living World," which will feature work from Richard Astro, Lori Newcomb, Naama Cohen, Carter Davis Johnson, and Daniel Lanza Rivers. Please look for us if you are attending the conference. If you are unable to attend, you will be able to find adaptations of these talks in upcoming issues of the Steinbeck Review.
