Cancelled! “On the Road” | Book + Art: A Mash-Up for Art & Book Lovers
Book + Art is a series that connects the public with reading and visual arts. For April the featured pairing is “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac and Art of the 1950s and ’60s. When published, “On the Road” was hailed by The New York Times as “the most beautifully executed, the clearest, and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as ‘beat.'” The book’s influence has continued and is widely considered one of the most significant novels of the 20th century. A museum tour that explores the art of the dynamic, disruptive 1950s and ’60s follows the book discussion. Attendees may visit their local library branch to check out a copy of the book.
This event is supported in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with Friends of the Palm Beach County Public Library, Inc.
