Het is dit jaar honderd jaar geleden dat de Amerikaanse schrijver Jack Kerouac, de auteur van On The Road, werd geboren. Wereldwijd wordt daar veel aandacht aan besteed. Vooral in Kerouacs geboortestad Lowell, in de staat Massachusetts, haalt men alles uit de kast om zijn verjaardag niet ongemerkt voorbij te laten gaan: het hele jaar kan men er lezingen, filmvertoningen en concerten bezoeken.

In Nederland staat op 9 oktober de culturele vrijhaven Ruigoord, waar men de geest van Kerouac en de Beat Generation al vijftig jaar levend houdt, in het teken van Kerouac en zijn werk. Net als in Lowell zal men in Ruigoord aan Kerouac en andere Beats gewijde lezingen kunnen bijwonen, films kunnen bekijken en muziek kunnen beluisteren. Deelnemers worden verwacht uit binnen- en buitenland. Keynote sprekers Ed Sanders en Joyce Johnson, tijdgenoten en vrienden van Kerouac, zullen hun verhaal doen via een zoom verbinding.

On March 12, 2022 it was a hundred years ago that the American writer Jack Kerouac was born. To celebrate his centennial a large number of events is taken place this year. Kerouacs’ birthplace Lowell, Massachusetts takes centre stage with readings, film presentations and concerts during the whole year – Kerouac’s birthday has not gone by unnoticed!

In the Netherlands we pay hommage to the great writer with a full-day program on Sunday October 9 at the artists’ village of Ruigoord, near Amsterdam. A day dedicated to Jack Kerouac and the Beat Generation. Writers, performers and scholars from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, England and the USA will take part in the event. Keynote speakers Joyce Johnson and Ed Sanders, both contemporaries and friends of Kerouac, will take part via Zoom.
