On the Blues Highway Dennis McNally’s writing career began when he turned his college dissertation on the Beat Generation’s biggest icon into the acclaimed book Desolate Angel: Jack Kerouac, The Beat EDITOR’S PICK Generation, and America. Jerry Garcia was so impressed with the book he invited McNally to become the Grateful Dead’s official historian and publicist, which led him to eventually pen A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead. His latest is On Highway 61: Music, Race, and the Evolution of Cultural Freedom, which explores the impact of early bluesmen on American culture and the music of Bob Dylan. McNally will be in Chico Monday, Nov. 3, to appear on KZFR’s Blues Bayou at noon, and to sign books at The Bookstore at 6:30 p.m. (See In the Mix, p. 29)
