Books come to life

The Glengarry News - - Front Page - BY AN­GELA BROWN News Staff

Books and peo­ple. The two go to­gether like tea and bis­cuits or like cho­co­late and bananas.

As part of Stor­mont-Dun­das-Glen­garry Li­braries pro­gram, branches through­out the re­gion are host­ing a “Hu­man Li­brary” pro­gram. De­tails can be seen at www.sdglibrary.ca.

The Alexandria Li­brary is host­ing its event Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 21, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The com­pelling “hu­man books” in­clude ER physi­cian and au­thor Melissa Yuan-In­nis, Christo­pher McGillis, who once worked at Dis­ney­land, and Linda Sauvé, ac­tor and au­thor of “Cho­co­late & Banana - - The Sex­i­est of Clas­sics.”

Visi­tors will have a chance to en­joy a 20minute con­ver­sa­tion with the “hu­man books.” The event comes just be­fore Free­dom to Read Week Fe­bru­ary 22 to 28. Dur­ing that week, peo­ple are en­cour­aged to visit the li­brary and learn more about what books were ac­tu­ally banned at one time. Visi­tors should also take the time to spend a few min­utes fill­ing out a bal­lot for a chance to win a fun prize.
