No town celebrates a writer before he's dead. --John Steinbeck **** John Steinbeck knew this scrabbly little hometown of his didn't much like him. Matter of fact, folks here hated him. Hated his ugly stories. Hated his pitiful characters. He wrote of whores and tramps and drunks, and of those wrung-out crop pickers, those miserable migrants. Honored them, he did. Exalted them. And spat on the growers and shippers who built Salinas into something.

Nearly 30 years after his death, author John Steinbeck was remembered Saturday as a museum named in his honor opened to the public. About 350 people helped dedicate the nearly $12-million National Steinbeck Center, which was two decades in the planning and won support from families of the very farmers who felt Steinbeck betrayed them. "Salinas did it right. This is a historic day for Salinas--this is a day for celebration," Mayor Alan Styles told the crowd.
