Experience the City that inspired literary legend Jack Kerouac!

During the summer of 2007 Lowell will be infused with the energy of the Beats: spoken word and poetry readings, live jazz, public art, theatrical performances, animated tours of Kerouac’s city haunts, a waffle ball tournament near Kerouac Park, art exhibits, and the signature exhibit of one of the most valuable literary manuscripts of all time.

Kerouac’s original On the Road scroll manuscript will be on display at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum of the Lowell National Historical Park starting June 15, and will run through October 14, 2007. The exhibit will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the publication of On the Road, recognized as one of the classic novels of modern American literature.

The event kicks off on June 15th, 2007 with the exhibition opening celebration from 6-9pm.
