Our guest speaker for this year’s Literacy and Numeracy Week is Mojgan Shamsalipoor. Mojgan is speaking to students and staff as a ‘Living Book’ on Wednesday 23rd August .
The Living Book or Living Library movement started in Denmark. Living Books (people) are borrowed instead of books, to tell a story about their life, their hobbies or about an event that happened to them during their lifetime. The ‘books’ themselves aren’t taken home, but they are used to give either a one-on-one speech or to a group.
