A powerful influence in my youth and I've never let go...this Dharma Bum is On the Road again. So grateful I was here and left a thank you.
checking in on an important day in Kerouac history....and hope to see you all later in the year
Dear LOWELL CELEBRATES KEROUAC, The new and improved web site is absolutely outstanding! Thank you for keeping the flame of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness alive and well. Jack Kerouac honored all three of those cherished American values, for sure! He instilled the regeneration of those original values in THE BEATS through hus quintessentially, modern, American literature. Uncle Billy always said that “Jack was a genius,” and he was right. We, who - like Jack - were also born and bred in Lowell, Massachusetts understand his genius and have a real responsibility to honor it and preserve his memory. LCK is doing an outstanding job of honoring this tradition, and tor that, we should all be very grateful. God bless you, one and all. - George Nicholas Koumantzelis 👍🌵🌅🌲😇

For kerouac's fans this is a must. I hadn't been back in years, so seeing the new memorial headstone and seeing that people still follow the tradition of leaving offerings was a great joy. "The Road is Life"
Iconic Author who defined an era in america culture!
As someone who loves the Beat Generation and Jack Kerouac I gotta say this gravesite had so much meaning to it. Lots of ppl placed things on his grave and just shows how much of an icon he truly was to so many people
