STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH
The Happiest Man on Earth is this month’s staff pick. Eddie Jaku OAM published this powerful memoir as he turned 100. After surviving a concentration camp, losing family, friends and country, Eddie vowed to smile every day and now believes he is the happiest man on earth. It is a moving account of how happiness can be found even in the darkest of times. You can borrow it from the Parkes Shire Library either as a book or a talking book.
