Beat generation expert Richard Marcel will interview Al Hinkle, real-life counterpart of the character Ed Dunkel in Jack Kerouac's novel, "On the Road," at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 5, at the Menlo Park Library.
"On the Road" is largely autobiographical, based on road trips of Mr. Kerouac and his friends, who are thinly disguised as characters in the book. Published in 1957, the novel is often considered a defining work of the post-war Beat Generation.
The free library event will include music and poetry by Gary Horsman and artwork by Uma Rani Iyli and Leah Lubin.
