Today, being the 20th day of the month, is the day I send out my free email newsletter.
Inspired by popular interest, I began this free monthly email newsletter in March 2014, when I sent that initial issue to 6 people. Little by little, it's grown to the point where this morning's newsletter was sent to 967 recipients.
Each newsletter details my schedule for the remainder of the current month through the end of the next month - which presentation I'm giving, where, and when. Here is this month's newsletter in PDF form
Anybody with a valid email address may register for the newsletter on my website: http://www.aaronkrerowicz.com/newsletter-sign-up.html. Just be sure to type the “prove you are human” part. (I get a lot of spam, so any submissions that skip that step are deleted.)
Newsletter subscription is the best way to stay in touch. The emails are sent from my personal Gmail account, which allows recipients to respond easily and efficiently. This permits me to maintain a monthly dialog with Beatles fans across the globe.
Plus, they feature adorable puppy pictures. In honor of my pooch, Abbey (as in Road), I started including a photo of her in each newsletter beginning in 2016. Here's December's, with Abbey all ready for the holidays:

About a month ago, I sat down with Larry DaSilva of Nutmeg TV in Farmington, CT for an hour-long interview about The Beatles and my most recent book, Days in the Life: A Father & Son on a Beatles Tour. The interview may be viewed in full here: http://nutmegtv.org/video-on-demand/single/?id=33939
More recently, the Journal Times in Racine, WI published an interview about the same book: http://journaltimes.com/lifestyles/relationships-and-special-occasions/father-and-son-write-book-about-beatles-tour/article_df11a9dd-11c7-5704-927f-6f3f4e665678.html
My 151st and final speaking engagement of 2016 will be tomorrow:
Saturday, 3 December 2016, 1:00-2:00 p.m.
South Whitley Community Public Library, 201 E Front St, South Whitley, IN
The Beatles: Band of the Sixties
Explore the music of The Beatles in this 60-minute multimedia presentation (part history and part musical analysis) spanning the full 1960's: beginning with the band's seminal visits to Hamburg, continuing through Beatlemania, and concluding with Abbey Road. The program will be supplemented with audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with the band members.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
