On July 29th, the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center and the West Tisbury Library Foundation present a showing of One fast move or I’m gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center. The movie examines Jack Kerouac’s escape from post On The Road fame to his dream of an isolated retreat in a cabin at Big Sur where he searches for inner peace.

In addition to the film, there will be a special live reading from Kerouac’s book Big Sur by radio personality, author and filmmaker Arnie Riesman and television and radio personality Paula Lyons.

Preceeding the film there will be a reception starting at 6:30 p.m. The reading will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Ticket prices will be $15–$12 for MVFC members.

Proceeds go toward landscaping and protecting the environment around the new West Tisbury Library and to the MVFS.
