On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, A Mongolian Memoir by Diane Height is about thriving in life’s third act, and embracing the aging process.
A Mongolian Memoir
Is it a sign of aging to give up goals and new experiences? The author of A Mongolian Memoir, Diane Height, asserts that it does not have to. Height worked as an elementary school teacher for the majority of her career in Southern California until she decided to embark on a new journey at the age of 64. She started teaching at an international school in Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia. She stayed for five years, during which time she realized she had a lot more to learn about the world and herself.
Height explained that everything changed — how she saw herself there and when she came home after living in Mongolia for five years.
Height recounts her moving experiences in Mongolia as well as her reflections on significant life shifts and the ways in which they led her to a new place—both internally and externally—that she had never imagined. She wrote A Mongolian Memoir to share her experiences living and teaching in Mongolia at a crossroads in her life that some might consider the beginning of their “third act.”
A Mongolian Memoir is an important book for Boomers and older people who don’t want to conform to what it means to be a senior in society. The world out there — Mongolia is a perfect example — and it can fill us with a love of life and remind us that life can be exciting when staying at home can’t.

Height has taught in Indonesia, Cambodia, and Italy since her time in Mongolia.
