We aired a story last week about John Steinbeck and Monterey, California. After returning to Monterey as an older man, Steinbeck wrote, "What we knew is dead…what's out there is new, and perhaps good, but it's nothing we know." Kind of a downer. We asked what your experiences returning home were, and we'll hear one from Doug Hill of Philadelphia.
Listen to last week's story on John Steinbeck and Monterey.
