The Living Library - set for Saturday, March 5 at Coquitlam Public Library's City Centre branch - is your opportunity to have a 20-minute, one-on-one talk with someone who has had different life experiences than your own.

This Living Library session will focus on children's issues, including adoption, home-schooling, autism and bringing up children in multicultural, multilingual and multi-religious families.

Among the Living Library "books" who will be speaking is Nasima Nastoh, whose son Hamed committed suicide because he was being bullied in school.

Also attending as a living "book" will be Nicholas Watkins from Douglas College's Faculty of Child, Family and Community Studies; he will speak about applied behaviour analysis or evaluating various autism interventions.

No registration is required for this free program, just drop in to the library between 1 and 3 p.m.

The City Centre branch is located at Coquitlam city hall, 3001 Burlington Dr.
