Graham Crossan, Espin Class of 1963 and author of ‘The Return’ (a story reflecting on Graham’s experience attending St Andrews College in the 1950s – 1960s), is about to publish his first book which will include ‘The Return’ and many other stories set in South Africa in the 1960s.
‘The Return’ was first published in a Blog by ‘Bent Thumb Thinking’ and when it was later published on the St Andrew’s College website, it received 2000+ views.
More recently, in last year’s edition of ‘The Bagpipe’ this story captured the hearts and minds of many more Old Andreans around the world, with several readers contacting Graham directly in response to his story.
Graham has Motor Neurone Disease and the publishing of his book ‘Bent Thumb Thinking – Stories of My life’ has been made possible through the online crowdfunding platform Pozible:
More pledges are being sought to relieve Graham of the additional costs associated with publishing and launching a book and to allow him to ‘give back’ to Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Victoria who have been so incredibly supportive. The book will be published in time for Christmas 2017.
