Join us Thursday, April 13 as Southern Roots Realty and the Museum of History present Happy Hour with the Historian featuring Bob Kealing and the story of how the Beatles rocked the Sunshine State!

In 1964, Beatlemania flooded the United States - including Florida! The Beatles appeared live on the Ed Sullivan Show and embarked on their first tour of North America—and they spent more time in Florida than anywhere else.

Kealing's new book Good Day Sunshine State - How the Beatles Rocked Florida, dives into this momentous time and place, exploring the Fab Four's seismic influence on the people and culture of Florida.

Kealing is a four-time Emmy Award-winning journalist and one of the most popular Happy Hour with the Historian speakers. His previous discussions have included Elvis Ignited - The Rise of an Icon in Florida; Kerouac in Florida - Where the Road Ends and The Life of the Party - Brownie Wise the Tupperware Queen!

Presented by Southern Roots Realty, Happy Hour with the Historian is frequently sold out, so reservations are required. Admission without a reservation cannot be guaranteed. Reservations close the day of the event.
