From the Shadow of JFK: The Rise of Beatlemania in America
Beatles authors have cited John F. Kennedy's assassination on 22
November 1963 as a cause of the Beatles' sudden popularity in the United
States in early 1964. Their logic: Kennedy's assassination made America
sad, then the Beatles made America happy again. But this commonly
accepted answer is overly simplistic. The real answer is that Kennedy's
life and death inadvertently primed the nation for the Beatles' arrival
and success. This 60-minute program will explain how and why. Registration required, please no children under the age of ten. The
library may email you in the future regarding similar programs.
