Susan Ryan started an online publication over 16 years ago called Rooftop Sessions, where fans submitted stories and prose about the Beatles. Now she hosts groups of women Beatles historians and comes up with new topics to explore each year in always fascinating talks. Susan also conducts Walking Tours of Beatles and John Lennon sites around New York City.
This year at the Fest, Susan will be taking over from the retiring Al Sussman (Al will still be at the Fest!) as Tom Frangione’s assistant.
