- History CafÉ
January 17, 2013 at MOHAI Seattle, WA
This month we take a look at the cultural impact of the “Beat Generation,” including a discussion of the history of beat poets in Washington state, with author of Kerouac in Seattle, Jim Jones. There will be a screening of a short KCTS 9 documentary, Desolation Adventure, chronicling Kerouac's time in the North Cascades. In addition, poet, playwright and filmmaker, Lucas Smiraldo, will offer readings of the beat poets, accompanied by Tony Gomez on percussion.
