St. Peter’s University, Jersey City

When Allen Ginsberg appeared with his father Louis Ginsberg at a Jesuit College in Jersey City, NJ in 1969 there was no predicting what was about to unfold. So, in 2022, when The Beat Museum on Wheels was invited by the school’s librarian, Mark Graceffo, we knew we had to go in memory of Allen. There was a reserved spot waiting for us when we rolled onto the parking lot at Saint Peter’s late at night. Our Kerouac@100 presentation the following day was a hit for students & professors alike. Saint Peter’s did not disappoint.
