On Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 6 p.m., the Safford Library hosts Arizona historian Marshall Shore for a lively discussion of “Arizona’s Mother Road: Iconic Route 66.”  John Steinbeck called Route 66 the “mother road,” and that name endures today.  Arizona has the longest stretch of 66 still is use.  This famous route is a timeline dotted with towns rich in history and tradition. Come take a trip down Arizona’s Route 66 and learn more about its role in “The Grapes of Wrath.”
