Overview

A Date with a Beatle is a charming look back at the glory days of Beatlemania, as seen through the eyes of a loyal and devoted fan. You'll feel as if you're right there with JUDY: at her first sighting of The Beatles at Kennedy Airport, witnessing their first press conference, sneaking into The Plaza Hotel, drooling over their first appearance on Ed Sullivan, her wild trip to The Beatles First American Concert in Washington, D.C., and the crazy antics she pulled off, all in loving effort to meet her idol, George Harrison - and she actually made it happen!

A Date with a Beatle is a hilarious, fast-paced, totally entertaining story of the magic that was created by four lovely lads from Liverpool and the dreams that can come true when tenacity and heart are headed in the same direction.

Editorial Reviews

David Bedford
When Judith Kristen decided as a 15 year old girl that she was going to see The Beatles she skipped school to see the group arrive at JFK airport, and then attempted to sneak into their press conference - with some success. The reason was her obsession: George Harrison.

Once she had set eyes on that face, nothing, and no one, was going to stop her from meeting her idol. What follows is a fantastic journey through a teenager's eyes as she follows her dream boy around her native Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey, and even manages to see the Beatles performance at the historic Shea Stadium concert on 15th August 1965.

The story is incredible; the adventure is incredible; her patience and perseverance defy belief at times to make for a book that, especially for second generation fans like me, finally gives a taste of what Beatlemania was really like.

For all the lengthy, fact-filled historically accurate Beatles books out there - like mine! - this is a must for those who want a first-hand taste of what it was really like to be a Beatles fan while the group were at their peak. Judith set out to meet George Harrison, and what happened was pretty amazing to enable the two of them to finally set eyes on each other - but I won't spoil that for you.

Buy the book, and smile as you read it! I did.

What People are saying about this

Bill Harry
A Date with a Beatle is a rollicking roller coaster of a ride as a feisty female set her sights on the Beatles - George in particular - during the Fab Four's first American trip. Films such as: I Want to Hold Your Hand and Secrets tried to capture the moment with fictional fans, but this is the real thing. I found it fascinating. (Bill Harry - Founder of Mersey Beat)
