Plot Synopsis:

"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "John Steinbeck," viewers learn how the esteemed author, playwright and screenwriter created an eclectic body of work before winning both a Pulitzer Prize and a Nobel Prize. Two themes that consistently reappeared in his writing were an emphasis on the lives of the poor and nature's awesome powers.
Labeled a Communist by many on the right, Steinbeck kept on with his work and even ignored threats on his life to write provocative novels such as "The Winter of Our Discontent" and "The Grapes of Wrath." These and other stories revealed the injustices suffered by the destitute during the Great Depression.
Now revered, Steinbeck's stories are frequently produced as plays or movies because of their timely subjects.
