Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck was widely known for what is considered his best work, The Grapes of Wrath, as well as other social novels dealing with the economic problems of rural labor. But what would his writing have portrayed “If Steinbeck was a Farmer?” This is the question that will be discussed during a special program presented by the CSU Bakersfield Kegley Institute of Ethics (KIE) and the Institute for Religion, Education and Public Policy. The presentation, co-sponsored by a grant from The Society of Philosophers of America, will take place on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 6pm in the CSUB multi-purpose room. The program will feature a discussion led by award-winning author and organic farmer, David Mas Masumoto. A respondent panel of local experts will include: Jill Egland, Director of Community Development, United Way of Kern County; Aaron Hegde, Director of CSUB's Environmental Resource Management Program; and Fatima Hernandez, BIA Accredited Representative, UFW Foundation. Parking is available in lot K after 5:30PM. For more information call (661)654-2555 or visit www.csub.edu/kie.
