Visit Mamita's house and learn how John Steinbeck found his characters in her neighborhood.

We will be celebrating the publication of a book by Lois Robin about a California Indian family who lived in this house during the depression era.

'Mamita's House: A True Tale of Tortilla Flat" tells how the resourceful Mamita brought a large family through difficult but lively times.

This book also recalls the visits of John Steinbeck to the house where he found models for the characters he put in his first successful novel Tortilla Flat, published in May 1935.
