Here's an opportunity to hear a firsthand account of what life was like for Paul McCartney and the rest of the Fab Four.

Barry Miles, a close friend of the 68-year-old Beatle, will discuss the Swinging London scene of the 1960s and its cultural impact at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 11, at Harper College in Palatine.

Miles penned McCartney's authorized biography "Many Years from Now" based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews over five years. He's also written books about Allen Ginsburg, William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac.

Miles will also discuss Indica, the counterculture art gallery and bookstore he owned with Peter Asher, the brother of McCartney's former girlfriend, Jane Asher.

Tickets to the talk are $10 for general admission, with discounts for Harper students, faculty and staff, other students and seniors. For more details, call (847) 925-6100 or go to harpercollege.edu.
