Two Beatles scholars to lecture at Louisiana libraries in February

Monroe, Louisiana -- As part of its "All You Need is Love" month, the Ouachita Parish Public Library in Monroe, Louisiana will host two renowned experts and authors on the Beatles: Jude Southerland Kessler and Aaron Krerowicz. Both will give presentations touching on the band's historical, cultural and musical influence.

Aaron Krerowicz

Krerowicz, a full-time professional music scholar, won a research grant through the University of Hartford in 2011 to study the Beatles, and has since presented his analysis of the band's music through more than 300 presentations throughout the USA and England.

Aaron has authored four Beatles books: The Beatles & The Avant-Garde (2014), The Beatles: Band of the Sixties (2015), From The Shadow of JFK: The Rise of Beatlemania in America (2015), and Days in the Life: A Father & Son on a Beatles Tour (2016). He will present, "The Beatles: Band of the Sixties" on Monday, February 6 at 5:30 p.m.

Jude Southerland Kessler

Jude Kessler, a Monroe resident, is the foremost expert on John Lennon and the author of The John Lennon Series - an outlined nine-volume work covering the life of the man who formed the Beatles. She is the Official Blogger for The Fest for Beatles Fans in New York City and Chicago, the Symposium Chairperson for the annual Beatles at the Ridge Festival, and recently served as co-chair of the GRAMMY Museum(R) Mississippi's Beatles Symposium.

Kessler has published the first three books in her series and is currently researching and writing Volume 4. She will be presenting, "Lennon's Liverpool: The Beginnings of The Beatles" at the library on Monday, February 13 at 5:30 p.m.

"It's an honor to be back speaking in my hometown on my favorite subject, John Lennon," says Kessler. "And I'm thrilled to be sharing the experience with another distinguished Beatles scholar such as Aaron."
