October 18, 7:30-8:30 PM: In concert with Wordier Than Thou’s Wordplay Festival (October 15-18), the Friends will launch their Kerouac Book Club with a discussion of Satori in Paris, a novella recounting Kerouac’s trip to Paris and Brittany to explore his family’s history. Join us as Thomas Hallock (Professor of English, USF-St. Pete) reads from the book and leads a discussion with guest panelists Bob Kealing, Monica Drake, Amanda Hagood, and Trey Conner. Copies of Satori are available at Tombolo Books. Call 727-755-9456 to order and arrange pick-up or shipping.
