Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Experience a multi-media program that will explore the post-Kennedy Beatlemania phenomenon in the United States!

beatlesbookJoin us at Hyannis Public Library on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:00pm when America’s only full-time professional Beatles scholar, Aaron Krerowicz, presents “After the Kennedy Assassination, did the Beatles make America happy again?” This program is co-sponsored by the Hyannis Library and the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum and is free and open to the public.

After the Kennedy Assassination, did the Beatles make America happy again? Many Beatles scholars believe this.  Their logic: Kennedy’s assassination made America sad, then the Beatles made America happy again. Beatles scholar Aaron Krerowicz believes this commonly accepted answer is overly simplistic, but the popularity and staying power of the Beatles remains unmatched in American history, and that Kennedy’s life and death inadvertently primed the nation for the Beatles’ success.
