John Ernst Steinbeck, Jr. (1902 - 1968), was a well-known American author, best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "The Grapes of Wrath". The novel was written in 1936 and involves an activist attempting to organize abused orchard valley laborers so that they can get fair wages and better working conditions. These draft scripts were for a film that was unproduced. A film adaptation finally happened in 2015, produced by James Franco and starring Nat Wolff as the leading character. Ziegler, Diskant was the original agency that specialized in representing novels to the movie industry, including this one. Some other copies of these scripts (which rarely appear on the market), have their label on the cover.
