"John Steinbeck’s California" Spring Book Retreat/Tour 2017

A Spring Book Retreat/Tour honoring one of America's most beloved authors, Nobel Prize-winner John Steinbeck. Morning discussions lead by humanities scholar Clay S. Jenkinson.  Enjoy book retreat discussions in the morning, touring in the afternoon, with several hikes and other adventures tossed in. Your cottage is within walking distance to the Point Pinos Lighthouse and the Pacific tide-pools that John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts stood appreciating the interconnectedness of life. We hope during your time in Steinbeck's California, memories from "the bard of the people", scenes and colorful characters from his best novels, and thought provoking literature, "spring" alive, if not for real, at least in "your mind's eye". To highlight your experience a suggested reading list is provided upon reservation. Come Join the FUN!
