    On March 12, 1922 Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts. He wrote extensively but is most remembered for his auto-biographical book “On the Road”. It was written on one long continuous scroll in 1951, over 3 substance-filled weeks. Making it possibly one of the most productive benders in history. Today his name is synonymous with the Beat Generation and his “First thought, best thought” style continues to influence writers today. FUN-FACT: English was actually Jack's 2nd language.
