Publisher seeks stories from mixed homes

THE Northern Ireland Mixed Marriage Association (NIMMA) is seeking volunteers to feature in a new book about the children of mixed marriages.

The paperback will give at least 10 individuals the chance to tell in their own words how they were affected as the children of couples who put love before traditional allegiances. Under the working title Both Sides Now, the book will be the first of its kind about the subject and is being produced and published entirely by NIMMA.

We will choose as broad as possible a cross-section of contributors to the final publication to reflect the real story of the mixed marriage child's experience on this island.

Anyone interested in contributing (and all inquiries will be treated in strictest confidence) should contact NIMMA, Belfast, on 028 9023 5444/info@nimma.org.uk.

Ken Dunn

Chairman, NIMMA
