With a record-breaking 26 million refugees looking for homes in 2019, Madeline Uraneck focuses on the life of one remarkable Tibetan refugee, Tenzin, she met by chance 25 years ago. A simple acquaintance any of us might make blossomed into a 25-year friendship with three generations of Tenzin’s family for Madeline, a woman without children, including explorations of three cultures on two continents. The Wisconsin-based story is a reminder of the richness that immigrants, refugees, and asylees bring to all of us.
Madeline Uraneck is an educator and writer who has visited sixty-four countries through her role as International Education Consultant for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, several Peace Corps assignments, and her passion for world travel. How to Make a Life was published by the Wisconsin Historical Society and won a Gold Award for Multicultural writing from the Independent Book Publishers.
