WESTFIELD, NJ -- The Westfield Memorial Library (550 East Broad St., Westfield) will present, “The Beatles: From Liverpool to Abbey Road" on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m.
This two-hour lecture examines the historic journey of The Beatles, starting from their early days in Liverpool and Hamburg, into the excitement of Beatlemania, through their ground-breaking studio albums (Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) to their remarkable final recordings at Abbey Road.
