From examiner.com:

Louise Harrison, George Harrison's sister, told Beatles Examiner in a phone call she's planning on publishing her memoirs sometime in 2013.

“I'm working very very hard at getting my memoirs together,” she said. “Southern Illinois University Press is going to be publishing it. I'm going to be spending the last week in January with them and I hope to get my photos and all that together for them to put into the book.”

Plans for the book are to come out in September.

“We're looking at the moment to having the release date for the book to be about September 15 in 2013 because that will be the 50th anniversary of when George (Harrison) came to visit the United States. He was the first Beatle to ever set foot in the United States.”

Jennifer Vanderslice, owner of MoonGlow PR, is proud to announce that her firm has been hired by Louise Harrison to handle all her future public relations.

Louise Harrison is the only sister of the late George Harrison of the Beatles. Louise was born and raised in Liverpool, UK where she attended La Sagesse Grammar School before enrolling in St. Mary's College Fenham in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. She is the owner of Louise Harrison Entertainment Ltd., the management firm the Beatles tribute band Liverpool Legends and the founder of Louise Harrison's Help Keep Music Alive, an organization that raises funds for the music departments of high schools and colleges.

Ms. Harrison was nominated Grammy Award in 2011 for her voice-over work on a Beatles themed audio book. She has been doing voice-overs and spoken narratives since the mid 60's and continues working in the industry today.

In February 2013, Louise Harrison has plans to organize a concert, headlined by Liverpool Legends, in honor of her brother George's 70th birthday. Louise will also be organizing a weeklong celebration in September in Benton, Illinois of the 50th anniversary of George Harrison being the first Beatle to come to America and perform.

Cool read. Thanks for sharing AG.

I wonder how much her copy of She Loves You would go for? And would love to hear that  interview George gave for local radio before the Beatles made it, maybe the newspaper article survives as well.

Here's a little bit more about that interview and newspaper article. It is from a book titled Read the Beatles : classic and new writings on the Beatles, their legacy, and why they still matter.

Later that year, as editor of the West Frankfort high school newspaper, Redbird Notes, Marcia Raubach wrote an account of her interview with the young Beatle. “Their music is wild and uninhibited and outsells the world’s greatest recording artists, although not one of the Beatles can read music,” she wrote. Later, she said, “I’m not quite sure what I meant by that. But maybe it was compared to what was out at the time.”

George also gave her an autographed photo of his group and a copy of their new single, “She Loves You,” before he left the station. Lou Harrison recalls that when George gave Marcia the photo of the Beatles, the young deejay’s immediate thought was, do you have one of just you? But George responded by saying, “No, no; we all stay in the picture together. That way there is a better chance of someone liking at least one of us,” Lou said.

Marcia Raubach said that George Harrison’s visit to the station lasted less than an hour, and then he was gone. The next time she saw him was less than five months later, on The Ed Sullivan Show on national television. “It was almost unbelievable; I just could not believe it,” she said. “Everybody was screaming and Ed Sullivan was beaming. I just didn’t have any idea that this group was going to be what they became.” Over the years, Marcia Raubach has thought about the day she met George Harrison and often says to herself, “Why we didn’t tape that interview, I’ll never know.”

 

From an Illinois Times article:

Louise came to the station (WRFX-AM) several times over the summer asking us to play the Beatles’ music, which up to that time had only been available in England,” said Raubach, ... One Saturday after she had finished her weekly broadcast she was called back to the station to meet Lou Harrison’s brothers, George and Peter, who had walked more than a mile to thank her for playing Beatles songs on the radio.

Marcia remembers Harrison as slight, slender, polite, shy and visibly impressed with her father’s “shiny black Oldsmobile with the big tail fins.” The interview, later printed in Raubach’s high school newspaper, was predictable. The 17-year-old Raubach asked Harrison what he liked about America. The 20-year-old lead-guitarist answered: “small blondes…, driving, sleeping…, Eartha Kitt, eggs and chips, and Alfred Hitchcock movies.” He gave her a copy of a newly released Beatles single (“She Loves You,” which she also played on the air) and a photo of the band, signing it on the back: “With Love, George Harrison.” (All during the interview, Peter took home movies of his brother, recording their American holiday to show the family back home in England. The movies have survived and are now in a private collection.)
