In the Shadow of The Beatles: Growing Up in Liverpool

BY JOHN GLENN
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 25, 2017

Growing up in Liverpool, England—which makes him a Liverpudlian—John E. Glenn lived his teenage years in the shadow of The Beatles. At a time and place of great musical significance, the Mersey Sound unfolded as a driving force behind the British Invasion of the United States music scene in the 1960s and beyond. John traces the geography and history of Liverpool as a globally leaning maritime city, noting that The Beatles were uniquely gifted, yet a logical outcome of the city’s diversity, passion, and location. He suggests that the Fab Four could not have conquered the world if not born in the perhaps-unlikely environs of the great world city known as Liverpool.

Growing-up Mennonite

BY RHODA MACK
@ VOL 4 ON NOV 18, 2017

Rhoda Weber Mack grew up in the twilight of the 18th Century, in a Mennonite world still connected to the freeholders of the Reformation. Her talk is about being rooted in a deep common history, and that the fence lines kept out the changing world. The farmland fields of home were bounded by the unknown, and she was curious. Then came the 1960’s—and seismic shifts in the Mennonite world.
