Come see me at the Fest!
I just got my tickets for the Fest for Beatle Fans in Chicago in the mail. I am super-excited about going this year. In part because I haven't gotten out of town all summer and I am just generally excited to be going somewhere. But also because I know that this is going to be a great Fest!
I have been asked to be on a panel of women Beatle writers at the Fest. I will be with Susan Ryan, Tina Kukla, Kit O'Toole, and Jude Kessler to discuss the women's point of view of the Beatles. I am can't even begin to tell you how excited I am! Speaking at a Beatles convention has always been a dream of mine. Now, I personally do not think of myself as a writer. I just type of stuff that I find on this blog. I have dreams of writing a Beatles book, but I can't afford to publish a book at this point in my life. But hey....they asked me to be on this panel to talk about the Beatles, so why not? The panel will be at 7:45pm on Saturday in the forum room. If you are a reader of this blog, I would LOVE to see you there. I personally will be talking about the blog, because that is what I do. I thought it would be super-fun to get together with people who are viewers of the blog and get a photo taken.
But even if you don't make it to the panel, and are going to be at the Fest, I would love to talk to you. That is why I am putting up a current photo of myself so everyone can see what I look like (Yikes!). I was going to put up a photo of myself at the Fest last summer, but (excuse me while I brag) I have lost 61 pounds since then and look different. So here I am a few weeks at at the Muny in my hometown area of St. Louis Missouri.
I also am working on putting together a costume for the first time to wear on Friday night. It is something that has to do with this blog (and no I am not dressing up like Lizzie Bravo, although that isn't a bad thought). I will post photos after the fact. I am keeping it a secret right now.
Hope to see you all at the Fest in Chicago in a few weeks!
All you need is love,
