Enter – Janice Madden

IJanice's New Book have just had the pleasure of attending the launch of Janice’s new book “Enter” at the Adelaide Migrant Center. For those of you who dont’ know, this week has been Refugee week and who better to round it off than Janice with her new book “Enter”.

Janice is a fabulously warm hearted Nothern lass (she’s from up Crewe way). As well as being a fabulous person with a very generous heart and a kind ear she is also a talented writer. When I was in Adelaide in 2007 she gave me her book “A Girl from Crewe” to read; that book documented her time as a child in Northern England as well as some of her experiences as she moved to Adelaide. I read it so I could reminisce about the time I had spent living up north when I was a child but the moments which stood out more were those of the tales she described of her experiences with the refugee students she now works with at Thebarton Senior College. This new book, “Enter” is a collection of stories taken from the Bi-lingual Student Support Officers (TAs) who work with her. They too are refugees and their stories need to be heard; Janice has given them voice.

If you work or live in a place where people are negative towards those who have to flee their country to seek asylum then you need to read this book and you need to share the stories within it; educate those who are blind to the real situation these people face and their value to your own community.

I have a deep respect for Jan and the work she is doing. She really is a remarkable women and I have been immensely privileged to sit in her classroom and watch her weave he magic with her classes.
