Join Florida Humanities Executive Director Nadshid Madyun and author Bob Kealing for a discussion on Good Day Sunshine State. Alongside the music stylings of J.J. Pattishall, we will explore the musical and cultural impact of The Beatles in Florida, an important part of the revolution that helped make the “Fab Four” a worldwide phenomenon.
