(Troy Public Library Press Release, March 3, 2015)

As part of our celebration of the 60th anniversary of the City of Troy, Wayne State University Professor and Detroit poet M.L. Liebler will give a presentation on the writing and culture of the Beat poets of the 1950s. He will be sharing information on the Beat movement as a whole Sahara ad with winealongside personal anecdotes from his own interactions with the writers.

“It’s like everything in the ’50s and ’60s is more popular now than it was then,” Liebler says. “Way more young people now read ‘On the Road’ (by Jack Kerouac), and the The Doors are way more popular now than in the ’60s. Younger musicians are influenced by the beats.

“The beats were an important part of American literature. They were people who thought outside of the box.”
