On Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 6:30 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will present a program titled, “The Beatles: From Liverpool to Abbey Road.” The library is located at 550 East Broad Street, Westfield.
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, Sargeant Peppers) to their remarkable final recordings at Abbey Road.
Speaker Vincent Bruno is a rock historian who focuses on The Beatles and The Sixties. Recently retired as rector of First Year Programs at LaGuardia Community College (City University of New York), he holds an MPA from Baruch College. An Adjunct Professor for the past 25 years, he has taught courses in numerous disciplines including Humanities, Management and Cooperative Education.
As a Beatles scholar/storyteller, he looks to both embrace not just their legacy but to present an entertaining, interactive and informative session for both the casual listener as well as the hard-core Beatles fan.
