    John Lennon Author/Historian

    Jude Southerland Kessler is now working on the fourth volume of the history of John Lennon, scheduled for publication in the near future. The current book, called She Loves You, is a must read, as her writing style is geared for fans, as she explains in great detail all angles of events in a very enjoyable and engaging manner. 800 + pages of day by day accounts of the year Beatlemania broke out in the U.K. –  1963-1964.  The first volume in the series is Shoulda Been There and the second is Shivering Inside.

    Jude has been a featured writer on the Fest’s Blog for the last two years, where she is contributing two pieces per month. Her A/V presentations at the FEST are original and you will even learn new things about the Beatles.

    Our condolences go out to Jude and her family on the passing of her father earlier this year. She had to miss our NY METRO FEST in March, so she is even more excited about the Chicago FEST this year so she can be around her Beatles family for the weekend.
