If I were a book, what would I be?

A thriller? In my dreams.

A romance?  Not bloody likely.

A comic book? Closer, perhaps – that is if the cover were a little wrinkled, some of the jokes kind of lame and a few crucial pages were missing in the middle.

Sound like something you’d like to ‘read’? Then check me out this Saturday, January 26 from 10 to 2 at the Keshen-Goodman Library in Clayton Park.

I’m just one of the many books at The Human Library.

And what might that be?

“Human Libraries provide an opportunity to connect one-on-one with individuals who have diverse life experiences, stories and knowledge. Just like borrowing a book from a local library, the user can, “check out” a human book for a 20-minute conversation in the library.”

Other books this year include a forensic anthropologist, a transgender activist, a chef, a judge and a member of the Provincial Legislature. Check out their fascinating stories here.
