Author Immortalizes His Baby Boomer Experience in New Memoir
Author Stephen B. Satterwhite successfully captures the real baby boomer experience in his relatable new memoir that speaks for a generation, "True Stories from a Baby Boomer" (published by WestBow Press).
"This is the end of my life and I promised my father at his grave 42 years ago that I would tell him what happened to me," Satterwhite explains. "I wanted to speak for my baby boomer generation, those who were born between 1946 and 1964, for this was truly an incredible time to be alive."
"True Stories from a Baby Boomer" is alternately humorous, spiritual and heart-wrenching. Satterwhite takes readers through his birth, childhood and adolescence and goes on to describe events that would help shape a generation: the Beatles, college, marriage, childbirth, divorce and death. When viewed as a whole, Satterwhite's experiences emerge as a unique snapshot of a particular time in history familiar to many.
An excerpt from "True Stories from a Baby Boomer":
"The Beatles were the answer we were looking for. They symbolized the rejection of everything our parents stood for-that we must be proper, that we must dress well, that we must have neat haircuts, that we must sing appropriate songs, that we must be businessmen, that we must become what they were. No way. It was the week my generation was born, just like every generation before and after ours."
