Join us tonight in the Schmidt Gallery for Read2Reel. We will be discussing the book On the Road by Jack Kerouac and watching the movie based on the book. The discussion starts at 5:30pm and the movie begins at 6pm.
Can’t make it tonight? Join us next month to read and discuss The Time Traveler’s Wife.
On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouac’s years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, “a sideburned hero of the snowy West.” As “Sal Paradise” and “Dean Moriarty,” the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac’s love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make On the Road an inspirational work of lasting importance.
Kerouac’s classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be “Beat” and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than forty years ago.
