Kerouac still celebrated in St. Pete on 100th birthday

The former home of the late author Jack Kerouac was renovated by then-owners Paige and Frank Viggiano, of The Flip Side LLC., shown leaving the home at 5169 10th Ave. N., on Oct. 15, 2020, in St. Petersburg. Ken Burchenal, a retired literature professor purchased the former Kerouac home with his wife, Gina, for $360,000 in 2020. The Beat Generation legend was known for wandering, and his family ties drew him to Florida again and again. (Scott Keeler/Tampa Bay Times via AP) (SCOTT KEELER/AP)
