Travels with Charley(s) – Get Outta Here! Podcast

The novelist John Steinbeck (The Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden) was a giant of American literature and a peripatetic traveler. He also wrote one of the most charming of travel books, Travels with Charley, about a journey he took with his dog in 1960 to re-acquaint himself with the country he was famous for describing.

Steinbeck’s widow Elaine accompanied him on most of his travels in the 18 years of their marriage. She was a prolific letter writer all of her adult life, and her letters and snapshots of their trips comprise the heart of a Steinbeck auction scheduled for February 27th in New Jersey. Our guide for this dive into Steinbeckiana is Charlie Potters, a consulting archivist for the auction house Curated Estates.

And on #MyFavoriteTrip: more Steinbeck. A couple of excerpts from Travels with Charley.
