Fifth Beatle nominated for Lambda Award!

Fifth Beatle Nominated for Lambda Literary Award
for "Best LGBT Graphic Novel"

FAB NEWS: The Fifth Beatle was named a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award "for excellence in LGBT literature." The "Lammy" is the most prestigious book prize in the LGBT community, and this is the first year they've had a graphic novel category. From writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary: "What an honor to be nominated for a 'Lammy'! Brian Epstein was homosexual at time when it was deemed a felony, and yet he dreamed of spreading the Beatles’ message of love across the globe– while tragically needing to hide his own love away."



AND THAT BIRD CAN DRAW: Fueled by rave reviews of his exquisite Fifth Beatle art, Andrew C. Robinson continues to create 
Beatles-related paintings, and fab special editions galore! Andrew is also doing a limited number of commissions and is currently on tour! So buy a book and get it signed! Upcoming appearances: Planet Comicon, Kansas City, MO (3/14-16); Emerald City Comicon, Seattle, WA (3/28-30); Wondercon, Anaheim CA -- Fifth Beatle panel w/ Vivek (4/18-20); and Big Wow ComicFest, San Jose, CA (5/17-18). Also, on 4/12, Andrew will be signing at a benefit for 15-year-old Brianna who has a brain tumor at Geoffrey's Comic Shop in Gardena, CA.



FORBES interview with Vivek"Why The Life Of Beatles Manager Brian Epstein Is The Perfect Parable For Professional Success" -- "This is where it gets tricky because that was part of Brian’s job: to shield them from his problems. You need to be the strong face of business to your clients. However, you also need to let them know what you’re going through so they appreciate what you do for them. They really loved him and I think he didn’t let them in enough....” 



Cultural Weekly interviews Vivek: "It’s the story of Brian Epstein – the man responsible for discovering and cultivating The Beatles. He saw in John, Paul, George and Ringo what nobody else did and orchestrated nearly every facet of their rise to iconic super stardom..."  Vivek, "the producing brains behind such Broadway hits as Green Day’s American Idiot, The Addams Family and A Raisin In The Sun," was also featured on the Cultural Weekly podcast.

Lithium Magazine Podcast put together a nice program with some Beatles love songs plus an interview with Vivek.
