Shopping for the Bookworm: A Literary Road Trip #2-The Beat Travels On

In case you are just joining us: A Literary Road Trip #1-A Dream of Travel.

THE BEAT TRAVELS ON

“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing?-it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”-Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Where we are going: Savannah, Georgia.

Why: Because we can.

Beat. The Open Road. Boys Club. Beat the open road, boys club. Make room for the rest of us. Freedom is in our hearts, too. We’ll take your attitude, your verve, your frisson, and carve our own ragged place beneath the wide skies. Word-passionate, flung far, sun-kissed. Beat.

“The only truth is music.”-Jack Kerouac
