Are you a religious leader in the Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Jewish faiths? Are you a vegetarian, a policeman, an atheist, a gay/lesbian person, a U.S. military veteran, a rock recording artist, a published author or any other interesting or unusual person? If so, we want you.</p> <p>The Canton Public Library is starting a Living Books program where patrons can check out "living books" (that would be YOU) for 30 minutes of face-to-face, one-on-one conversation. These interviews are intended to answer questions for the curious, satisfy special interests and beliefs and learn from others' experiences. With dialogue comes understanding - with understanding comes tolerance.</p> <p>We would like to celebrate the Canton community's diversity, share ideas, dispel stereotypes and come together with acceptance. To become a "living book" please call Marcia at 734.397.0999 X 1079 for an initial interview and learn the particulars of the program.</p> Arts and Crafts Business Education News Religion and Spirituality Social Science Teens Adults Parents Seniors library catalog Living book Mon, 22 Jun 2009 14:37:36 +0000 prog.coord 12699 at Book & Author Luncheon The Friends of the Canton, Plymouth, Northville and Novi Libraries present the 23rd annual Book &amp; Author Luncheon featuring guest author and speaker Paula Tutman, WDIV reporter.<br /><strong>Wednesday, May 13, 2009<img class="image image-thumbnail" height="75" alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/Paula%20Tutman.thumbnail.jpg" width="100" style="float:right;" /><br />Fox Hills Country Club in Plymouth Twp. <br />Lunch included.  Seating at 11:30 with lunch at 12 noon.<br /></strong>Tutman is the author of <em>Deadline,</em> a thriller loosely based on her true life experience as a police reporter.<br />Tickets available at library reception desk for $25 from April 1 to May 4.
