A Literary Tour of North Beach with Bill Morgan
Sponsor The Contemporary Jewish Museum
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description “If any city in America deserves the title of home of the Beat Generation, it is San Francisco,” says Bill Morgan, archivist and bibliographer for public figures such as Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and others. On a literary walking tour of North Beach, Morgan provides a dynamic trip back to the Beats’ legendary past. Morgan served as Ginsberg’s personal archivist and bibliographer from the early 1980s until the author’s death of cancer in 1997. Over their twenty-year relationship, Morgan became quite close to Ginsberg and has written extensively on the Beat Generation and its key figures. Presented in conjunction with The Allen Ginsberg Festival and the exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. July 11 and 13, 2013
