Please join us on April 3 in Room 407 at Parkway Central
to hear author Patricia Gallo-Stenman speak about her book
Diary Of A Beatlemaniac: A Fab Insider’s Look at the Beatles Era.
with a foreword by Larry Kane

The book is a cultural exploration not only of who Beatlemaniacs were but also of how Beatlemania made some fans who they are today. Gallo-Stenman, a precocious teenager from blue-collar Southwest Philadelphia, offers readers an account of her coming-of-age in the wake of Beatles fandom.

Amid the cultural and social upheaval of the early 1960s, four mop-top lads from Liverpool strummed onto the music scene and into the hearts of teenage girls. Taken from the vintage diary of a Philadelphia schoolgirl at the heart of the Beatles craze, from her weekly Teen to Teen newspaper column to her friendship with Victor Spinetti, this lighthearted memoir offers an insider’s look at what it meant to be a Beatlemaniac.
