Beatles expert Candy Leonard announces launch of new Beatleness book, blog and website

Beatles author and speaker - Candy Leonard of Cambridge, MA, is pleased to announce the launch of her new book, website and blog – Beatleness: How the Beatles and Their Fans Remade the World.

Candy Leonard is thrilled to announce that her book, Beatleness: How the Beatles and Their Fans Remade the World (Arcade, August 2014; ISBN 162872417X) has been released in hardcover one month in advance of its original release date.

Beatleness: How the Beatles and Their Fans Remade the World is a fan-centered, sociological look at the Beatles phenomenon and what Leonard refers to as the ‘joyful trauma’ experienced by millions of Fab Four fans. The book is available at,, and can be ordered from any local bookstore.

“The response so far has been great,” Leonard said. “People who’ve read Beatleness are saying they appreciate the fresh approach and are buying it for their kids and grandkids so they can see and feel what it was like to grow up in the sixties with the Beatles on center stage. In a way, Beatleness is a cultural history of the sixties as seen through the lens of Beatle fandom; it’s not just for the hardcore fan.”

Candy Leonard will be debuting Beatleness at the Fest for Beatle Fans in Chicago on August 15-17 where she will be giving presentations throughout the weekend along with greeting fans and signing books.

In conjunction with the release of her book, Leonard has launched her new website, where readers can find an overview of the book, the Beatleness Blog, reviews, news and events, and excerpts from the book.
