I am Jannine Callaghan from Eltham.  I have lived here for 39 years.  Each day we come here for a coffee and sit at this table.  The regulars know we love this spot.

I am passionate about the welfare of asylum seekers and the treatment of refugees.  That takes up a lot of my reading time, mainly on the internet.  I got to the marches and rallies and one of my sons comes with me too.

The last book I read was heavy-duty reading, it was called “If This Was A Woman” and it was the story of the Ravensbrook concentration camp where only women were incarcerated.  That was quite a big read and very gruelling.  It was written by Sarah Helm.  It’s only fairly newly released, I think.  I read a light-headed easy book in between because it was very gruelling.
