One night, 40 years ago this week, a young man approached musician John Lennon outside Lennon’s Manhattan apartment building. The young man appeared to be asking for an autograph, but instead, shot and killed Lennon, who was just 40.

A few years later, Lennon’s half-sister, Julia Baird, wrote a book about her, her brother, and their mother, called John Lennon, My Brother.

I met Julia Baird in 1988, when she was touring the U.S. to promote that book.

So here now, from 1988, Julia Baird.

Julia Baird is 73 now, retired from her job as a teacher, and still lives in Liverpool.
