Description

Each year the Steinbeck Center presents the Steinbeck Award, celebrating musicians, writers, documentarians, thinkers, artists and activists whose work embodies the empathetic spirit and values of John Steinbeck. Previous recipients include Bruce Springsteen, Rachel Maddow and Ken Burns. This year, British folk-pop superstars Mumford & Sons are set to accept SJSU’s illustrious prize in a celebration at Stanford's Bing Concert Hall. The award is going to Mumford & Sons both because they've written songs inspired by Steinbeck and also because they’ve demonstrated a serious commitment to social engagement through their Gentlemen of the Road project, which supports global and local charities fighting for social justice.
