I wasn't sure if I should put this in the Canadian area since someone in the area might be interested in going or being a 'book'. Or if I should put this in the veggie patch since it's an interesting story. Anyway......

In Winnipeg they have the Human Library Project going. It's really a pretty cool idea.

Quote:
In a Human Library, people become the books and are 'borrowed' for conversation. The Human Books come from all backgrounds and ways of life, but they all have one thing in common: for different reasons they are often subjected to stereotyping or prejudices. Books and readers meet for a half hour 'loan period' in a safe and welcoming environment -- the library -- with the opportunity to listen, ask questions, and share experiences. The Human Library creates a new way to connect with each other: one Book, one Reader, one conversation at a time.
