LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — University of Massachusetts Lowell is launching a discussion series based on the books of homegrown Beat Generation author Jack Kerouac.
The reading and discussion series kicks off Jan. 29, with English Department professor Todd Tietchen (TEET'-chen) leading talks based on selected works by the author.
The five-part series will include discussions of ‘‘The Town and the City,’’ ‘'Visions of Gerard,’’ and ‘‘Maggie Cassidy.’’
It runs until the end of April.
Pre-registered participants will get a copy of the first discussion book in the mail, and free copies of the other titles will be handed out at program events.
