THURSDAY, JANUARY 25TH, 2007
4:00 PM - 12:00 AM in the Arts Cafe: Kelly Writers House (3805 Locust Walk, Philadelphia) celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Jack Kerouac's On the Road.
Jack Kerouac's On the Road, a rollicking, stream-of-consciousness novel, burst onto the literary scene in 1957, rocketing Kerouac to fame and inspired a multi-generational obsession with "the road." On the Road, a rapid-fire adventure tale of crossing the country (and back again) solo and with friends, discovering drugs, jazz, and the "bug" of travel, became a benchmark for the Beat Generation.
Kerouac wrote the novel in a three-week marathon burst on 12-reams of paper he taped together and referred to as "the scroll." In celebration of the book, and the spirit of the book, the Writers House will host a marathon reading of our own scroll, featuring local luminary guest readers, accompanied by improvisational jazz musicians, and you! Stop by the house to listen to the novel, enjoy the jazz and jump in on the reading! If you would like to read a section of the scroll, please RSVP to email@example.com
