It's a big year in film for Jack Kerouac fans. There's no better way to celebrate his birthday today than to reread your Kerouac favorites in anticipation for these upcoming adaptations.
A pioneer of the Beat Generation and best known for his novel, "On the Road," Jack Kerouac would have been 90 years old today. He was born in Massachusetts but died in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 1969. Most people don't know this, but Florida was also where Kerouac was living when "On the Road" was published.
