As a young Afghan immigrant, Hosseini had a profound life-changing experience when his Independence High School English teacher, Jan Sanchez, introduced him to John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. Join us as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Steinbeck classic with Dr. Hosseini, who will be honored with the John Steinbeck Award for his literary contributions and humanitarian efforts.
