Around the World with Joyce Johnson

by admin | Aug-24-2007

Earlier this week, Joyce Johnson wrote about her time with Kerouac in Vanity Fair. 

You can buy her memoir, Minor Characters, at Powells for 20 percent off right now. 

You can get read an excerpt from the book here at NPR. 

Interesting, buyers of Minor Characters at seem to go on to buy all the memoirs of women of the beat movement. 

There is actually a website dedicated to women of the beat movement. 

If you live in the Boston area, on Thursday, September 6th, Johnson will be in Cambridge at the Brattle Theater for a 6PM event with John Leland, author of Why Kerouac Matters.
