Don't judge a book by its cover

Attend Sept. 23 Sedona Human Library Event 

It’s easy to judge a book by its cover. But what if you could “borrow” it and sit down and talk with the subject about aging, near death experiences, communicating with extraterrestrials, being illegally healed, and more. You can do just that on Sunday, Sept. 23, during the second Sedona Human Library™ event, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. at the Sedona Public Library. Attendees may select from over 40 human books for up to eight 45-minute sessions. Hosted by the Sedona International City of Peace, Rotary Club of Sedona and Sedona Public Library, the goal of the event is to dissolve prejudices with people one might normally avoid or dismiss, gain understanding and possibly develop new ways of relating. To register to attend go to: www.SedonaHumanLibrary2018.eventbrite.com Please arrive 15 minutes before your session.
