Gerald Nicosia, poet and legendary biographer of Jack and Jan Kerouac, will be in England at the end of this month to talk on Jack and take part in a poetry reading.I quote Gerry himself:

My talk on Kerouac—called “The Writer Kerouac, the Mythological Kerouac, the Popular Kerouac, and the Real Kerouac”-- will be at the English Faculty lecture hall, 5PM, Friday October 22.  The address is 9 West Road, Cambridge.  For further information, contact Malcolm Guite at St. Mark’s Vicarage, Cambridge, 01223 694249.  The next night, Saturday October 23, at 8PM, I will give a poetry reading along with Malcolm Guite and Keith Dersley, to the accompaniment of a jazz group called RipRap.  This will take place at the Memorial (Unitarian) Church in Cambridge, Emmanuel Road, near the bus station, in central Cambridge.  Again, Malcolm Guite would be the person to give more specific details.

I'm sure anybody who's in Cambridge that weekend will be glad to support these events. It isn't every day a writer of Gerry's calibre makes it over here to good old Blighty.
