Janice James Launches Book at Library

The Philipsburg Jubilee Library invites the general public to the book launch of Faith by author Janice Alina James. This event will take place on Friday, November 30th, 2012 at 7.00pm at the Library.

James’ book "Faith", is a compilation of poems and short stories written over a period of years. The languages used in this book, English, Dutch and Papiamentu respectively, are part of the uniqueness of Curaçao, where she was born and grew up. "We spoke English at home, Dutch at school and Papiamentu among friends", James explained. Janice was born on the island of Curaçao, where she was raised and completed her education. Janice migrated to St. Maarten in 1988 and has been living on St. Maarten ever since. Janice always loved to put her thoughts on paper. This talent grew as she matured and this project is a result of her love for literature in the form of poems and stories, which started at the tender age of fourteen.
