Beatles Liverpool dream comes true in new book
by Adam Forrest, Beatles News Editor
A new book from acclaimed author Judith Kristen and famous Beatles artist Eric Cash, called Once Upon A Time in Liverpool, will be available next Friday.
Written in a "youthful" way, a style reminiscent of those old Dick and Jane "readers" of the 50s and 60s and even the early 70s, in the book, four lads from a small town called Liverpool changed the face of Rock and Roll, forever. But their story is far more than one of music, it's about having dreams and making them come true, it's about the power of genuine friendship, it's about believing in yourself, and others, and living a life filled with heart, tenacity, and passion.
The book celebrates how John, Paul, George, and Ringo gave the musical world its happily ever after and for that a billion fans are eternally grateful. But, maybe even more than that, The Beatles' story in Once Upon A Time In Liverpool is a heart-felt reminder to each and every one of us that it's not where you start that counts, it's how you finish.
Part of the proceeds from this book will benefit The Penny Lane Development Trust, right there on Penny Lane in Liverpool. The Penny Lane Development Trust is a community hub supporting all groups in the Liverpool community through leisure time activities, providing a safe environment where area kids can learn, socialize and gain new skills.
