“On the Road” Exhibit at Lowell National Historical Park through October 14

The last day to see Jack Kerouac’s original scroll manuscript of On the Road In Lowell will be October 14, 2007.

The exhibit includes not only the scroll, but also personal items from Kerouac’s collection, audio recordings of Kerouac’s work, and a period typewriter where visitors can practice typing like Kerouac and others of the Beat generation.
