“Beat Generation” writer Jack Kerouac lived in San Luis Obispo in 1953, working as a brakeman for the railroad. His time spent in this Central Coast community is highlighted in the exhibit, “Going Against the Grain” at the History Center of San Luis Obispo County. Pete Kelley, chair of the exhibits committee, talked about individuals in the county who were part of the arts and cultural movement.
