Two Summers: Nixon and Trump by Greyhound bus

Two Summers: Nixon and Trump by Greyhound bus by Tim Albert

Thursday 18 February 2021, 3.00pm

Tim grew up in Lingfield Road about which he spoke to us previously.  His early career was as a journalist and he is now an author. His latest book ‘Two Summers: Nixon and Trump by Greyhound bus’ has recently been published.

‘In 1969 the 22-year-old Tim Albert spent three happy months travelling 12,000 miles around the United States on Greyhound buses. Half a century later – to the day – he set out to revisit his trip, armed with his original 30,000-word diary.

Would he find the America of President Trump much altered from the America of President Nixon? How would Greyhound bus travel have changed in a world flooded by motor cars and electronic devices? And would his 72-year-old body last the course?’

The talk will be presented via a ZOOM webinar. Access details have been sent to members via email.

A video recording of the talk will be made available after the event in PAST TALKS.
