Jura Books, Sydney, 2 July 2016

As many of you know, Jack 'The Anarchist' Grancharoff died on the 15th of May, at his home in Quaama, South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, aged 91. He died 'with his boots on' - he seemed to have risen from a chair, with an open book and a glass of something interesting on the table, collapsed onto the floor and was found a day or two later.

Celebration of Jack Grancharoff's life

Hi everyone,

As many of you know, Jack 'The Anarchist' Grancharoff died on the 15th of May, at his home in Quaama, South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, aged 91. He died 'with his boots on' - he seemed to have risen from a chair, with an open book and a glass of something interesting on the table, collapsed onto the floor and was found a day or two later.

Maybe he was researching an article that I'd asked him to write on Bakunin...in any case, doing one of the things that he loved. Self educated in the finer things of life, from a shepherd's background, he loved thinking, discussing, arguing, nature, farming and revolutionary change, among many other things.

Jura Books will hold a celebration of his life at 5pm on Saturday, 2nd July - close to his birthday on the 5th.

Jura's address is 440 Parramatta Rd, Petersham.

Ph 9550 9931

Web: www.jura.org.au

Directions:
Buses from Central/City: 436/438/440/480/461 (just get out at the stop before Norton St and it's a short walk to the west, away from the city on the same side of the road. Or if you get off at Norton St, then go back to Parramatta Rd and cross at the next set of lights, and Jura is about four shops past the pub on the corner of Crystal St, towards the city).
Trains: about a 7-10 minute walk to the East along Crystal St from Petersham Station, towards Parramatta Rd and Jura is a few shops along, past the pub on the corner.

Car parking in Charles St, Crystal St, or a little on Parramatta Rd just out side Jura.

There will be a slide show of photos, a photo exhibition, and two short films, one at Quaama in his backyard praising his sheep, and one in Italy of Jack singing 'Bella Ciao' in Italian (a real hoot!). If anyone would like to say a few words in his memory, that would be welcome to commemorate his amazingly full and fascinating life. We'll have some nibblies and drinks, please bring something along, too, if you can.

Hope to see you there,

Ciao, Sid for the Jura Collective.
