Jack Was Here, a Beat Generation Walk
March 5, 2016
Denver’s hip 1940’s brought the Beat Generation’s authors, Allen Ginsberg‘s Howl (1956), William S. Burroughs‘s Naked Lunch(1959) and Jack Kerouac‘s On the Road (1957), together in wild and crazy ways. Come retrace their steps as we haunt their stomping grounds in downtown Denver, seeking out Jack Was Here landmarks, stopping in on their favorite be-bopping 5 Points clubs, uncovering significant places that influenced Kerouac’s writing, and retracing the lives of these Beat characters.
Here I was in Denver…I stumbled along with the most wicked grin of joy in the world, among the bums and beat cowboys of Larimer Street. – Jack Kerouac, On The Road
