I had the pleasure of working with CBC’s Jill Dempsey a few years ago when I moderated a reading of the Christmas Carol, at the Dublin Street United Church. Now, Jill’s back in Guelph as the journalist-and-radio-host addition to the University of Guelph’s “human library.” The university says a human library is designed to give people a chance “to meet face to face with individuals who belong to groups that often face challenges due to broad generalizations, stereotyping, misunderstanding and even marginalization.” Certainly journalists fit at least one of those categories.
The human library is open March 4-5. Click here for more details.
