Jack Kerouac Birthday Bash!

John Allen Cassady & Jerry Cimino

Join Beat Museum Founder and Director Jerry Cimino as he reads the poetry and prose of Jack Kerouac. Musical accompaniment with personal accounts and stories by John Allen Cassady.

John Allen Cassady is the third child of Neal and Carolyn Cassady and just happens to be named after his father’s two best friends, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg.

John was born when his parents lived at 29 Russell Street in San Francisco and grew up in Los Gatos, CA on Bancroft Avenue where Jack Kerouac was a frequent guest.

And don’t miss the hilarious story of why John is named John and not Jack Allen Cassady.
