TOMS RIVER – Hear an intimate account of the band that changed pop music culture. The Ocean County Library Toms River Branch will host John Paul Groom’s presentation, “The Beatles: Success, Superstardom, and Separation,” 6:30 PM Wednesday, April 13.
Groom will explore the rise of Beatlemania on both sides of the Atlantic as he discusses their many albums and tours, entry into film, and rapid growth as creative songwriters who expanded the boundaries of popular music.
Born and raised in Liverpool, England, Groom attended the same high school as Paul McCartney and George Harrison; was enrolled in the same Sunday school as John Lennon; frequented the youth club where John met Paul; lived in the same village as George and John; and (of course) is a Beatles fan.
Registration is required for this free program. Sign up and see more details at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events or call the Toms River Branch, 732-349-6200.03-22-beatles.pdf
