Thu, May 11, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM BST
Mark Lewisohn is the acknowledged world authority on the Beatles. His books include the bestselling and influential Recording Sessions (1988), The Complete Beatles Chronicle (1992), The Beatles’ London (1994 and 2008) and, most recently, Tune In (2013) – the first volume in his comprehensive history of the Beatles and their times, a trilogy of books under the umbrella title The Beatles: All These Years. Volumes 2 and 3 are due out over the next decade . . . or thereabouts . . .
The world’s only professional Beatles historian, Lewisohn was consultant and researcher for all aspects – TV, DVDs, CDs and book – of the Beatles’ own Anthology and has been involved in a number of other projects for them, as well as many independent works.
Beatles in five minute bites
Walthamstow Rock 'n' Roll Book Club invites YOU to bring along a Beatles or Beatles-related artefact which Mark Lewisohn will talk about for a timed five minutes, explaining the Beatles’ vast history through that specific prism. The item can be anything at all – a photo, a record, a document, a press cutting or magazine cover, a piece of memorabilia, a book – just grab any kind of souvenir that grabs you, and bring it along. Mark won’t know the items in advance and will illuminate them spontaneously, informatively and fascinatingly before moving on to the next.
