Jami Cassady: Off the Road
'On the Road' on tracing paper
Thu, April 13, 2017 6.30 pm – 7.30 pm CEST, Lecture


Jami Cassady will give a talk about her parents Neal and Carolyn Cassady as part of the exhibition »Beat Generation«.

They say, »behind every good man there is a good woman«, and that is especially true of my mother, Carolyn Elizabeth Robinson Cassady. After graduating from Bennington College she moved to Denver to pursue her master's degree in Theater Arts at Denver University. It was in Denver that she met Neal Cassady.

Jami Cassady will be touching on her many artistic achievements.

The question Jami Cassady get asked most often is: »How was it growing up with Neal as your father? I bet it was really wild«. Actually, she didn't know about any of his fame, or that the men that came over for dinner and conversation were anything but Uncle Jack and Uncle Allen.
