Happy Birthday Jack Kerouac!

Jack Kerouac would have turned 91 on March 12. Even though he died in 1969, Kerouac’s influence on American literature is still felt today.

 

“Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.”
― Jack KerouacOn the Road
