Would it be worthwhile having a thread on handwritten Beatles lyrics, set-lists and other such things? Or do we already have one? Should i be asking this in another thread?

I was thinking it might be worthwhile to have a thread dedicated to exhibits, as there are certainly enough of them.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

I just saw this announcement from the Fest for Beatles Fans. I don't know anything else about it.

BEATLE-BOOK CLUB!

How will it work?

Every month, starting NOW, we're going to announce the Beatle-Book of the Month. We'll give you enough time to order it to arrive for the first of each month, if you don't own it yet.

Then, the rest of the experience will vary month to month, book to book! As you read the book, we'll give you ways to connect with other Beatles fans who are reading it too -- like a Live Video Chat or Facebook Q&A with the author, an art activity, a Faboratory discussion, or maybe we'll play Musical Dares. We'll help you absorb the book's content while having virtual fun with your Beatlefriends all over the world. Sound like a plan!? Who's in?

And yes, you guessed it.... the first book, starting in Fabruary 2016, will be Vivek J Tiwary's iconic comic book style Beatles masterpiece, a New York Times Bestseller that's currently being turned into a major motion picture....

The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story

Click to ORDER YOUR SIGNED COPY OF THE FIFTH BEATLE from thefest.com today if you don't own it yet!
>>> feeling fancy? go for the >>> DELUXE EDITION, also signed, with bonus photos and materials.

If anyone is interested, here's an email address that goes with the announcement: newsletter@thefest.com

I used to be a regular attendee of the Chicago "The Fest For Beatle Fans" every August.  I went almost every year in the 1990s and 2000s on a Saturday.  But I stopped going after I lost my job and money became an issue.

But I just got old enough to start collecting on an annuity and am now pondering whether to go this year.  Is there anybody here who is a regular goer and plans to be there this year?  Maybe if there are enough of you, I might be persuaded.  But I know most of our regular posters come from other parts of the country and even the world.

You are all my friends.
