The Merry Pranksters
In 1963, novelist Ken Kesey’s bungalow in the Bohemian neighborhood of Menlo Park, California, was torn down by developers so he moved to a place deep in the redwoods in nearby La Honda, where he'd heard "marijuana grows like a weed." On September 1, 1963, he formed “The Merry Pranksters.” He was 27. Ken Kesey appears twice in A Book of Ages.
