      An idea whose time has surely come.

      Dear Friends



      Here's an other take on the question "What is a book?"





      "A new kind of Library has opened, where instead of books you can borrow a
      Muslim - or a single father, or a transvestite, for a chat.

      Alex

      Forsyth volunteers to be lent as a 'book', and asks whether this concept can
      really help break down stereotypes.*



      A Muslim, a Catholic and a transsexual are sitting in a library. An opener
      to a joke this is not: It is the Living Library - where, instead of books,
      you borrow people. You pick a person for a 30-minute dialogue in which you
      can ask questions, engage in meaningful discourse or simply bounce ideas. I
      wait with the other 'books' to be borrowed."
