Hamilton Public Library to hold inaugural 'human book' event
Six residents will take part in the Hamilton Public Library's first-ever "human book" event Wednesday night for settled immigrants or long-time Canadians. 

Six residents will take part in the Hamilton Public Library‘s first-ever “human book” event Wednesday night.

The residents — or human books — come from diverse backgrounds and will share their life journeys working and living in Canada in short one-to-one conversations with a settled immigrant or long-time Canadian.

The roster of human books includes police officer Jen Jones, reporter Paul Benedetti, accountant Diane Shamchuck, physiotherapist Jean Wessel, engineer Mike McNally, and construction project manager Natalee Rodriguez.

The event is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 55 York Blvd.

Those interested in attending must be permanent residents or protected persons (persons who had a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, or political opinion).

To register, email [email protected], call 905-546-3444, or visit the Newcomer Learning Centre on the 4th Floor of Central library.
