We're Gonna Party Like It's 1966
First things first . . . my thanks to Angie who volunteered to switch blogging days with me so I could be here today, the release day for Pepper Martin mystery #7, "A Hard Day’s Fright." As I mentioned last week, in "Fright," Pepper meets the ghost of a teenager who attended a Beatles concert in 1966–and was never seen again. It only seems natural that if we’re going to do a little contest, it be based on that year. So slip on your mini-skirt, tease your hair (unless you’re one of those cool girls who’s wearing hers long and straight) and get to work on these five questions about 1966. I’ll randomly choose a winner from the people who send me the right answers, and I’ll send out a copy of "A Hard Day’s Fright." Since you don’t want to post your answers where everyone can see them and copy them and not have to work to find them, send them to me privately at: email@example.com And post a note here on the blog telling me you entered. Good luck! Here goes: 1. In 1966, the president of the United Sates was ________________________________. 2. In 1966, the Best Movie Oscar went to ______________________________________. 3. Since "Fright" has a Beatles connection, we need a Beatles question. In August of ‘66, the Beatles released a legendary album called __________________________________. 4. In September of ‘66, a sci-fi TV show premiered to mixed reviews. It is now considered a classic. Its title ________________________________________________________. 5. In May of 1966, the Beatles released a single that shot to the top of the charts. Its title is especially appropriate here at Wicked Authors. That is __________________________.
