“If any city in America deserves the title of home of the Beat Generation, it is San Francisco” says Bill Morgan, archivist and bibliographer for public figures such as Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and others. On a literary walking tour of North Beach, Morgan provides a dynamic trip back to the Beats legendary past.

Morgan served as Ginsberg's personal archivist and bibliographer from the early1980s until the author's death of cancer in 1997. Over their twenty-year relationship, Morgan became quite close to Ginsberg and has written extensively on the Beat Generation and its key figures.
