Olivia Harrison to sign copies of George Harrison book and film at Liverpool ONE

Grammy Award winning producer and philanthropist, Olivia Harrison celebrates the release of her book, and the Martin Scorsese biopic film on DVD & Blu-Ray, ‘George Harrison – Living in the Material World’ with a signing session at HMV’s Liverpool ONE store, South John Street on Thursday 1st December 2011.

Olivia will be at the HMV store from 6.00 pm to meet fans and sign copies of the new book which is published through Abrams and the film which is released through Lionsgate. 
Drawing on George Harrison’s personal archive of photographs, letters, diaries, and memorabilia, Olivia Harrison’s book reveals the arc of his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool, to the astonishment of the Beatles years, to his days as an independent musician and bohemian squire. Here too is the record of Harrison’s lifelong commitment to Indian music and his adventures as a movie producer, Travelling Wilbury, and Formula One racing fan.

The book is filled with reminiscences from Harrison’s friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and many, many others. Among its previously unpublished riches are photographs by Harrison himself beginning in the mid-1960s. It is a rich tribute to a man who died far too young, but who touched the lives of millions.

In the film, available on DVD and Blu-ray, Scorsese uses never-before-seen footage from George Harrison’s childhood, throughout his years with The Beatles, his solo career, and through the joys and pain of his private life, to trace George’s journey from his birth in 1943 to his passing in 2001. Living in the Material World features private home videos, photos and never before heard tracks to chronicle the incredible story of the extraordinary man. The result is a rare glimpse into the mind and soul of one of the most talented artists of his generation and a profoundly intimate and affecting work of cinema.
