Program Description

Event Details

Join us before the program for a Tea and Scone reception. Sponsored by the Republic Bank of Chicago.

Sixty years ago, Ringo Starr joined the Beatles and the group released their first recording, “Love Me Do.” To commemorate these momentous events, historian Dr. John F. Lyons examines the impact of the Beatles on the Chicago metropolitan area. Through the use of music, video and many unseen photographs from the 1960s, this highly entertaining presentation reveals untold stories of the Beatles’ visits to Chicago, highlights the unique connections between the Fab 4 and the Windy City and discusses the diverse cast of characters who were engulfed by the whirlwind of Beatlemania.

Dr. John F. Lyons will be presenting from the Library's event room.

Sponsored by Republic Bank of Chicago.
