At the NY Beatles Fest last month, I noticed how many other authors set up banners to attract attention from the perusing crowds. Jude Kessler, author of The John Lennon Series, had beautiful large posters advertising her books. But all I had were my little 8.5 x 11" sign holders. I decided I needed something bigger to draw attention, and so designed and ordered this 18 x 36" banner through Vistaprint:
I'm quite pleased with it, although I don't understand why they left the bar code on the lower right corner. (They were supposed to trim off that edge....)
Anyway, the banner will be on display tomorrow afternoon at the Winnetka, Illinois public library:
Saturday, 7 May 2016, 3:00-4:00 p.m.

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.
