Hernandez, author of Manana Means Heaven, and David Amram will be there, along with lots of other special guests and a great crowd of Beat scholars and fans. You can view the whole 2015 Lowell Celebrates Kerouac! line-up here.

    Dear Stephanie  YASSOO one more time!! If the ten books which you mentioned that celebrated the immigrant experience included a Swedish-Americana tale, it’s only a natter of time before the new generation of literati-vultures discover that Socrates, Plato and Aristophanes as the greatest jazz=poets of their time, have had some DESCENDANTS, and start to look around and fine some modern day cats (and kitties) who are dealing with the Hellenic heritage everyday of their lives here in the New World to make it a better place for all of us who, except for the Native Americans, all got here by boat , and some , like Homer back then,  and YOU right now , were and are able to write  it DOWN! Homer had some help, since he couldn’t see,  but like you, he knew how to tell a story and share it with others, so eventually YOU will be discovered by whoever is supposed to be the cultural anthropologist of the year. But in the meantime, you are doing it anyway, so just keep on being creative, and know that you are appreciated even in BlogLand!! All cheers from Lowell David
