Thayer Public Library will host Aaron Krerowicz

Mr. Krerowicz will present From the Shadow of JFK: The Rise of Beatlemania in America

          "February 1964 was the most important month of the Beatles' entire career. It firmly established  Beatlemania in the United States, highlighted by three performances on The Ed Sullivan Show. This60-minute multimedia program will put the Beatles' first U.S. visit in historical context, with particular emphasis on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and how the president's death helped Beatlemania flourish,  in order to explain why that month proved to be the single most pivotal month of the band's existence."

Mr. Krerowicz won a research grant through the University of Hartford in November 2011 to study the band and since has presented his findings through  more than one hundred presentations at libraries, universities, continuing education programs, and community centers throughout the United States. His first Beatles book, The Beatles &The Avant-Garde, was published in late 2014. His second, The Beatles: Band of the Sixties, was released as a Kindle ebook in April 2015; and third,
