Reading Jack Kerouac and other beat writers: Michael Parker seeks participants for Sat, Nov 3, presentation at Centenary College
The idea is that each participant will take one writer from the Beat Generation orbit and read a selection of works.
Poet/scholar Charles Stein will be at Centenary College on Thursday, November 1, followed by a performance/reading the next evening. During the weekend, still being planned, will be a film festival celebrating the Beat Generation and related artistic movements. The reading will take place Sat evening.
I would like to have a wide selection beyond the usual Beat trinity of Kerouac, Ginsberg and Burroughs. If anyone would like to make other suggestions (including the wide variety of female and non-white writers), please let me know.
