Yellow Jigsaw's Talking About My Generation campaign reporters will be hosting a 'Living Library' as part of their Ambition for Ageing funded project.
The event will take place 1pm - 4pm at the Town Hall Extension Café and will be the first ‘Living Library’ to only host people aged 50 and over, all from different walks of life, who will share their personal stories that challenge age-related prejudice and stereotypes.
Visitors can browse the bookcase of sixteen available titles and choose the book they want to read: the only difference is that in the Living Library, books are people, and reading consists of a conversation. The Library will be hosted in the café area where readers will be invited to pull up a pew and meet their ‘book’ in real life. No need to book!
The campaign is part of an Ambition for Ageing project, with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, and is being co-delivered with the support of PR social enterprise Yellow Jigsaw and Age UK partners from Wigan, Salford, Tameside, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Bolton and Manchester.
