Kerouac in Rocky Mount, N.C.

The day is flying … finally back in the office after appointments all morning, with another appointment coming up shortly.

Today once I sit still I’ll be wrapping up some articles describing my visit to see “The Mythical Scroll,” Jack Kerouac’s 120-foot long manuscript for “On the Road” which was on view at the New York Public Library.

The scroll is now on view in Austin, Texas, which is currently hosting another remarkable exhbit. The scroll will be on view in Austin through June 1.

I had a delightful conversation with John Dorfner yesterday, the writer who actually tracked down the West Mount home where Kerouac stayed with his sister Nin and her husband, Paul, for some time in the 1950s.

More on that conversation tomorrow.
