Following the interview about HOMELANDS THEN & NOW directly after the launch online on Stuff and also published in the North Taranaki Midweek, I was contacted by a representative of The Office of Ethnic Communities Te Tari Matawaka, Saya Hashimoto. She asked me for a telephone interview which I am happy to announce, has been published on their website ethnic communities (ethniccommunities.govt.nz). You may view the article Book celebrates migrants’ contributions to New Plymouth by Saya Hashimoto, here.

Finally the launch of HOMELANDS THEN & NOW – Enlightening stories from migrants – Journeys and experiences from motherlands to New Zealand has happened after a period of interviews, transcriptions, writing, editing and layout plus the design of the book cover. So rewarding to see the book come to life in print!
This book is a free publication by Migrant Connections Taranaki and is readable as a softcover through our public libraries (currently available at Puke Ariki Library in New Plymouth) and secondary schools. You will also be able to read this book in PDF format on our Migrant Connections website, here.
