Missed a few important Kerouac dates in September

My dog-eared and annotated copy of On The Road

We've been away for a few days and thus I missed posting about several Kerouac-related dates.

Most importantly, I missed the anniversary of the publication of On The Road on September 5, 1957! It no less than launched our boy Jack into literary stardom.

On September 3 we neglected to remember the birthday of Justin Brierly. Read what we said about him on this occasion last year HERE,

On September 6 we neglected to remember the death of Joan Vollmer Adams (1951) and the birth of Natalie Jackson (1931). Read what we said about them on this occasion HERE.

That's it for missed dates in September. I may miss some more, so forgive me in advance.

Thank you for remembering the anniversary of the publication of On The Road even if it was just a bit late. it's the kind of anniversary that should be on all of our calendars.
