Information mistakes[edit]

The information given on the right-hand side facts contains some mistakes, for example, it says that he was born in 1813 and died in 1998 at the age of 96. And in the main parragraph of the article it says he was born and died on February 27, 1902 – December 20, 1968. Back again over to the right hand side facts it also mentions "Of Mice and Boys" as one of his notable works. Where I believe it should be "Of Mice And Men" It says his occupation was of a plumber and track star. I don't know anything of the life of John Steinbeck, but even if he did worked as a plumber in his life, I doubt it should be mentioned in this particular place. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.213.14.202 (talk) 02:15, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
