The Insiders: Robert Begiebing wants to tell you all about being a Baby Boomer

For us youngins, the 1950s might as well be a time warp to a different dimension. Really, what did people do without cell phones and the Google machine?

Well for one, they probably spent a lot more time outside and looking through the phone book and encyclopedias, but we’re not even positive those things were even around at that point. But Robert Begiebing grew up during that time and is prepared to prove that people actually lived and thrived during that era. And tonight, Begiebing will talk about his latest book – a memoir titled, A Berkshire Boyhood: Confessions of a Baby Boomer, at Gibson’s Bookstore at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

And if you can’t get enough of the NHIAA playoffs – and we know you can’t – head down Interstate 93 to Southern New Hampshire University for the Division III baseball semifinals featuring our neighbors to the south, Bow High School. The Falcons are coming off back-to-back shutouts and are looking for another upset as the 14th seed when they square off with No. 2 Somersworth at 4 p.m.
