Schmidt, a Title 1 reading teacher for 2nd to 5th grade students, started her "Meet the Beatles for Real" blog in 2009, a site that now has over 3 million hits. For Happiness is Seeing The Beatles, she interviewed more than 60 fans and insiders over the course of two years. The book has rare photos, many of which had never before been published. One of the many interesting stories in it tells why Paul McCartney called The Beatles' concert in St. Louis "the worst little gig we ever played."
"Some of the concerts were rough on the band, while they remained life-changing experiences for the fans in the audience," Schmidt explains. "I am so excited about having my book release celebration as part of this festival," says Schmidt. "And it will be a combination of two of my all-time favorite things: cake and The Beatles!"
You can meet Sarah on Saturday, September 17 at 10:15 a.m. CT at The Studio on Main Street as part of the Beatles at the Ridge festival in Walnut Ridge, AR.
Beatles at the Ridge is a free event. For a complete weekend schedule, please visit www.beatlesattheridge.com. For more information on Sara Schmidt and her book, visit www.stlbeatles.com or her blog at www.meetthebeatlesforreal.com.
