Famous Memorial explorer becomes a human book

By Michelle Osmond | Jan. 14, 2013

Human Kinetics and Recreation professor and mountain climber Dr. TA Loeffler will be part of a National Human Library later this month.

CBC, in partnership with local libraries and cultural centres, has asked local volunteers with a wide range of life experiences to act as human "books" and be available for one-on-one conversations about their lives.

The Newfoundland and Labrador event will be held on Jan. 26 at the St. John's Arts and Culture Centre, in partnership with the A.C. Hunter Public Library from 1 to 5 p.m.

The Human Library concept was developed in Denmark and human libraries have taken place all over the world.

The event is free and open to all ages. Organizers will also have lots of activities and material on site to explore between conversations.
