Books in My Lobby 7

The latest offering from my lobby. I didn't grab it, too many books in the queue.
John Steinbeck’s In Dubious Battle is a fictionalized account of an apple pickers' strike in the small California town, Torgas Valley. Published in 1936, it continues Steinbeck's social criticism; his struggle to shine a light in the unseen corner of the working class.

John Steinbeck is kind of a heavy read for a day at the beach.

If you come across any romance, save it for me. ;)

Hi Dell -- I love to hear about the books available for picking in your lobby. Steinbeck was once a great favorite of mine and I should reread some of his works. Thanks for reminding me!
