This lively presentation examines the two weeks the Beatles spent in the potboiler that was 1964 Florida; longer than anywhere else in North America that watershed year. South Florida is center stage; it’s the subject of Kealing’s new book, “Good Day Sunshine State, How the Beatles Rocked Florida.” It will also address the tragedy of losing the Deauville Hotel; one of the most important Beatle landmarks in North America.
