Happy Birthday Jack!

A Fireside Chat With Doug McConnell & Tjiska Van Wyk

On January 12, 2019 Jack London would have celebrated his 143rd birthday! Can you imagine what he might have accomplished if he had lived another 103 years? In just 40 years he wrote 50 books and lived more fully than most can imagine.
