Borrow a Muslim? A 'living library' to prick stereotypes: In 12 countries, people check out people for a 30-minute conversation to challenge their own prejudices.

Date: June 4, 2008
Author: Mark Rice-Oxley
QUOTE: Welcome to the Living Library. Here, you borrow individuals who represent stereotypes that often are the target of prejudice or hatred. At this east London library on a recent Saturday, there were 26 "books" available, including a Muslim, an immigrant, a transgender individual, a witch, and an Indian atheist. Readers borrow them for half an hour, hear their narrative, question them, even pry a little, and – so the theory goes – break down some of their preconceptions and stop "judging the book by the cover."
