Do you love Jack Kerouac? Hate him? Either way, you'll have a blast at Wordier Than Thou’s Literary Roast of Jack Kerouac. This year, our roasters (writers, artists and community leaders) take on the iconic Beat author who spent his final years in St. Petersburg.

Proceeds will benefit Wordier Than Thou programming. Wordier Than Thou, a 501c3, supports Tampa Bay area (and beyond) authors and readers in fun ways, and promotes literacy for all ages.

A portion of proceeds will also benefit Friends of the Jack Kerouac House.

Jack will make an appearance himself (portrayed by Matt Walker). Roasters include Danny Olda, Thomas Hallock, Jerrod Schwartz, Erik Deckers, James Hartzell and Stephen Henry.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Ticket price includes one drink. Purchase tickets online here.
