Program Description

Event Details

Sixty years ago, Ringo Starr joined the Beatles and the group released their first recording, “Love Me Do.” To commemorate these momentous events, historian 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. Come see the 4EVER4 exhibit in the library’s Arts & Culture Center October 9-30! 

This is a hybrid event, with an in-person presenter and both in-person and virtual participants. This registration is to attend in-person. To attend via Zoom instead, click here.
