Reading Jack Kerouac in September

September 21, 2012 · No Comments

…the Library of Congress is set to release an edition of the complete poems of Jack Kerouac (as part of the Library of America series).  The Library of American blog is feature an interview with Marilene Phipps-Kettlewell about Kerouac, and about his eternal appeal.  Thinking back on being young, and thinking back on reading, it is hard to think of something more engaging than reading Kerouac in September…that month that for students is all about all anew.  First year students reading Kerouac as they grapple with all on and between the greenswalds of college.  Something to ponder. While we don’t have this book yet (we will), we have extensive holdings in Kerouac.
