Bill Morgan, biographer and personal archivist to Allen Ginsberg, will speak at Stanford University, home of the Ginsberg archives. Morgan, who coordinated the transfer of Ginberg’s archives to Stanford, will be in conversation with Stanford literary scholar Hilton Obenzinger. Morgan and Obenzinger will discuss the legacy of Ginsberg’s cultural contributions and the scope of the Ginsberg archives.
Several items of Ginsberg memorabilia will be on display, giving the public a rare opportunity to view items held in Stanford Special Collections.
This event is part of The Allen Ginsberg Festival, and is being presented in conjunction with the Contemporary Jewish Museum exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg.
Free and open to the public.
