Mr Eternity book

Due to the fact the book we'd selected wasn't yet available in paperback in Australia (we'll read that next year) - we've made a change so for November-December, 2017. We're now reading Roy Williams and Elizabeth Meyers' book, Mr Eternity: The Story of Arthur Stace. To buy the book, follow this link (ebook) - Mr Eternity: The Story of Arthur Stace or this link (paperback) - Mr Eternity: The Story of Arthur Stace.
