The debut of "Carte Blanhe: The Beatles' White Album" on Thursday had a small but very engaged audience - about 20 total. "Carte Blanche" is the first program I've done that includes a group discussion after the program (in which we debate which half of The White Album to keep and which half to discard in an effort to whittle it down to a single disc instead of a double). That went so well, that I think I will make an effort to find ways of holding similar discussions after some other programs. But I'll have to think about what such discussions could be added to which programs before implementing them.
Where "Carte Blanche" was the late of my Illinois programs for 2014, so too tomorrow's "The Beatles: Band of the Sixties" will be the last Wisconsin program for this year. This one at the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library (431 West Center St, Whitewater, WI) from 1:00-2:30pm.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
