Annie Street resurrects a manuscript she wrote in 1964 called Chasing the Beatles. It is filled with the crazy ideas, schemes, and adventures she and her cousin Bridget O'Malley shared that year to get a pair of those impossible-to-get tickets to the Beatles concert at the Hollywood Bowl. She is sure that reading the manuscript, and remembering those days, will give Bridget the hope, joy, and faith she needs at this moment in her life.
Chasing the Beatles captures the excitement and exuberance of Beatlemania at its height, and recalls perfectly those more innocent times and desires. The girls battle parents, rogue nuns, boys, institutions, and more, to be blessed in the end by surprising events, and impossible dreams come true. Chasing the Beatles touches heart and soul, and reminds us of the power and magic of music.
Take a joyful trip back to the time when the Beatles first captured our hearts, and changed our lives forever.
