Kerouac's home a haven to Writer's.....
Jacket Copy visited Jack Kerouac's house in Orlando, Fla.: "I know: Florida? Jack Kerouac lived in Florida? In 1957, when On the Road was published, Kerouac came to live with his mother in Florida, in her Orlando bungalow in a quiet neighborhood called College Park. He stayed less than a year, but there, during a short and intense stretch not all that different from the one in which he composed On the Road, he wrote The Dharma Bums."
The house is maintained by the Jack Kerouac Project, "a bootstrap nonprofit that keeps the house up and, just as important, funds three-month writers residencies in the house," Jacket Copy wrote.
