Diary of a Beatlemaniac

A Fab Insider's Look at the Beatles Era

By Patricia Gallo-Stenman

Diary of a Beatlemanac

Driven by the frenzy of fan clubs, Beatles concerts, and endless dreams and meeting schemes, Diary of a Beatlemaniac: A Fab Insider's Look at the Beatles Era romps through the heady, roller-coaster days of Beatlemania as seen through the eyes of one Philadelphia schoolgirl and her band of 'Beatle Buddies.' 


Compiled from the author's own diary and extensive scrapbooking, and featuring a wealth of original photographs and exclusive interviews with Victor Spinetti and Hy Lit, this extraordinary slice of life peeks into the heart of an inner-city teen at the forefront of Beatlemania.


For Beatlemaniacs of any age, this memoir offers a unique glimpse into the groovy days of the Swingin' Sixties and the chance to relive the magic of the pop-culture phenomenon called the Beatles.
