They're Gonna Put Me In The Movies: The Beatles on Film In addition to achieving tremendous success with their records, The Beatles also achieved great success with their movies – and the band's history can be understood quite clearly through the progression of their films. This 60-minute multimedia program will discuss "A Hard Day's Night" (1964), "Help!" (1965)," Magical Mystery Tour" (1967), "Yellow Submarine" (1968), and "Let it Be" (1970) with the purpose of tracing the band's artistic evolution through observation and analysis of their films. Light refreshments will be served and a copy of the CD "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" will be raffled off in honor of the 50th anniversary of its release, courtesy of The Friends of The Library Foundation. Though born 15 years after the band broke up, Aaron Krerowicz is the United States’ only full-time Beatles music scholar. He has done more than 250 presentations throughout the U.S. and England. Aaron has authored four Beatles books. For more information, and to register for his free monthly email newsletter, visit his website: www.AaronKrerowicz.com.

The Influence of Bob Dylan on The Beatles With his folksy guitar playing and philosophical lyrics, no other contemporary influenced the songwriting of John Lennon and Paul McCartney more than Bob Dylan.

A performance by Charleston's premier Beatles Tribute Band Rubber Soul will follow the presentation. Light refreshments will be served and a copy of the CD "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" will be raffled off in honor of the 50th anniversary of its release, courtesy of The Friends of The Library Foundation.
