Of Mice & Men – John Steinbeck


Chosen by Rachel

A 1937 novella which details the life of George and Lennie, two displaced migrant ranch workers. Now required reading in many schools, it was once a frequent target of censors.

© Of Mice and Men is a tribute to literature and to humanity. It has influenced pop culture and human nature so much that reading the book in this day and age feels like the story is already known. It must have been a shock and a delight to read it upon publication. If there was one book that was to be made compulsory reading for all of mankind, this would be it.” – Rachel
