British Author Tim Albert Will Discuss “Mostly We Had It Good: A Baby Boomer’s Journey” April 17

Published on Mar 31, 2023

When he retired after a 40-year career as a British journalist, Tim Albert set out to discover the answer to one question: Did we baby boomers really have it so good? This led him to write a memoir titled “Mostly We Had It Good: A Baby Boomer’s Journey” that charts his progress through the second half of the 20th century.

Albert will discuss his book Monday, April 17, at 10:30 a.m. via Zoom, presented by the Pasadena Senior Center. He will highlight his journey from his childhood in Wimbledon, a town in southwest London, in the 1950s through his career that began at a small-town newspaper in the English countryside, then at national newspapers in London and, beginning in the 1980s, as a medical journalist. Now he is a retiree who lives with his wife near London.

The event will be free to members of the Pasadena Senior Center and only $5 for nonmembers.

Albert’s other books include “Two Summers: Nixon and Trump by Greyhound,” published in 2020, that details his bus trip across America over the course of three months in 1969 when he was 22 years old and again as an aging boomer 50 years later, armed with his 40,000-word journal from 1969. He gave a Zoom presentation on this book in 2020 for Pasadena Senior Center members and nonmembers.
