on_the_road.largeThanks to those of you who joined us for our last film club viewing and discussion of THE SPECTACULAR NOW. Our next YPG Book to Film Club selection is ON THE ROAD by Jack Kerouac (Viking, 1957). Based on the cross-country travels of Kerouac and his friends, it is considered a defining work of the postwar Beat and Counterculture generations. The novel swings to the rhythms of 50s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns, and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, the living epitome of Beat. The 2012 film was directed by Walter Salles and stars Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart.

The viewing and discussion will take place on Wednesday, June 18th from 7:00-9:30pm at Penguin (375 Hudson Street). You must sign up to attend, so RSVP HEREGrab your copy of the book now and see you there!
