"Everybody goes home in October." But in Toledo, Ohio, we celebrate Jack Kerouac every year with "Back to Jack" performances.
Back to Jack is an annual performance of the writings of Jack Kerouac. The event was initiated by local poets Joel Lipman, Nick Muska, Don McKivett and Bob Phillips. In recent years, performers have included poets Michael Kocinski, Ashley Eichner, Caroline Braugher and Jake Hammond.
