Human Library coming to Bristol

Posted

Modeled on a traditional library, the Human Library Rhode Island 2014 consists of “human books” – real people, including playwright and community activist Elvys Ruiz, pictured, who have volunteered to tell their personal stories and to answer questions about life experiences. Readers are invited to browse a catalog and check out a “book” for a 15-minute, one-on-one conversation, during which they can learn about their subject and ask questions.

WHERE: Roger Williams University, 1 Old Ferry Road, Bristol

WHEN: Sunday, March 30; 1 to 5 p.m.

COST: Free

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
