Jack Kerouac’s On the Road; Lincoln Drill Hall

Jack Kerouac’s On the Road; Lincoln Drill Hall Friday 28 March @ 12 pm.

Lunchtime Literature Talk with Dr. Jane Mackay.

This is the novel that shook the ‘American Dream’ and epitomised the teenage rebellion of the 1950s. It gave voice to what came to be called the ‘Beat Generation’ of underground America, with its love of rock and roll, drugs and motor bikes. Come and explore the life of this compulsive writer who anchored a particular time and place and changed what was ‘acceptable’ in literature for ever.
