Don't judge a book by its cover — particularly when that "book" is a human being.

This Saturday, visit the Hamilton Public Library to "read" a Hamiltonian with an interesting story as part of CBC Human Library Day.

In partnership with CBC, local libraries and cultural centres in 15 cities across the country have asked volunteers with a wide range of experiences to act as human "books" and make themselves available for one-on-one conversations about their lives.

In Hamilton, visit the Central, Dundas, Terryberry and Westdale branches on Saturday Jan. 26 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. to have a conversation with a human "book."

Sky Gilbert, our Drag Queen human book, is a local playwright and professor at the University of Guelph. Sign him out at Central Branch or watch his video in the window at the top of this page.
