New Beatles novel set during Beatlemania
"From Me To You" is a new coming-of-age novel set during the Beatlemania era written by Garry Berman and Kelly Marie Thompson. The story begins in the summer of 1963 when transcontinental pen pals Ricky Kramer in New Jersey, and Maggie Carter in Liverpool, have been sharing their enthusiasm for the Beatles.
Authors Berman and Thompson are themselves pen pals with Berman living in the U.S. and Thompson in the UK. Berman is also the author of several books on British pop culture, including "We're Going to See the Beatles!": An Oral History of Beatlemania as Told by the Fans Who Were There."
