Hiba Yusuf, who has undergone two kidney transplants, is one of the 37 people available to talk with on Saturday as part of the Ottawa Human Library.
The Human Library is a collaboration between the CBC, Ottawa Public Library and Bibliothèque municipale de Gatineau.
People who go can reserve and “check out” one of the preregistered participants — the “human books” — for a 20-minute conversation.
Yusuf will be at the St. Laurent branch talking about her experiences as a transplant recipient and cellular molecular biology student.
