For Your Beatle University Library

Gregory Alexander isn’t a real professor but he plays one on the radio. His lectures are only a few minutes long and he usually offers two each Sunday morning as part of WXRT air personality Terri Hemmert’s Breakfast With The Beatles show. His pseudonym Professor Moptop befits a guy who conducts extensive research in all things related to The Beatles—their inspirations, peers, projects, and personal quirks. So it’s not surprising that he’s now channeling all that energy into a new role as a paperback writer.

Alexander/Prof. Moptop, a faculty member of the fictional Beatle University, has already met his goal to raise on $4, 489 on Kickstarter for his Textbook Beatles Volume 1, with seven days left. A $25 pledge will earn you a copy of the book; fork over $50, and you’ll get an autographed edition. He’s offering other perks for a variety of of pledge amounts. Judging from the wealth of information and low-key humor Professor Moptop brings to Breakfast With The Beatles, it’s likely that his textbook will be an entertaining read.

Professor Moptop will be at the Deerfield Public Library this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. to share his “critical analysis” of Help. A screening of the The Beatles’ second film will follow his presentation. The library is located at 920 Waukegan Road in Deerfield, IL. Admission is free.
