Citizen Library begins today at Alliance Francaise de Bhopal

Saturday, 18 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

A unique event — Citizen Library — will be held on Saturday at Alliance Francaise de Bhopal. At Citizen Library this Saturday, Bhopalites will witness the unheard stories of inspiring faces of Bhopal.

Event will be held by the Optimist Citizen. It is a first of its kind event in the city. It is a library where readers come to listen to “human books”. People, from diverse walks of life, who have had diverse and inspiring experiences in life are invited as books. For a certain amount of time, the readers or audience can ask them questions and listen to their stories, which are as fascinating and as immersive as you can find in a book.

This is the second edition of Citizen Library. As in the first edition last year, this edition also has an extremely amazing set of human books. The speakers for this edition Citizen Library are

Nirmala Sharma, ceramist artist, Sanjeev Shri, a flamenco artist, CSP Bittu Sharma,  police officer and Salim Saanpwale, who is known for his master skill of catching and rescuing snakes from offices, houses at any corner of the city at any hour of the day,

Gauranshi Sharma, a 12-year old a player who also participated World Youth Deaf Badminton Championship and Varsha Varman, Indian sport shooter.

The first edition of Citizen Library that was organised last year had an equally set of speakers and the event was attended by a huge gathering of 200 people from across the city. The Optimist Citizen invites the people of Bhopal to come and witness the stories of these inspiring speakers first hand.
