This year's Living Books:
Biviana
I reported to authorities a suspicious package on a shipment I was looking after at my job in Colombia. The next day, my sister and I were kidnapped and tortured. I will share my story about how I went from fear and anger to helping others.
Bryan
I was caught up in a lifestyle that placed little value on life. Listen to the story of how I went from gangster to Dad-next-door.
Bruce
I have fascinating stories from my life in the RCMP between 1957 and 1986. I'll talk about my experiences in Canada's North, patrolling and visiting Inuit camps in the wild and unspoiled parts of Quebec and Baffin Island during the 60's.
Carmen
For 40 years, I endured physical and mental abuse, numbing the pain with alcohol. One night while driving home drunk, I almost ran through a red light. The next morning I made a decision. Listen to my story of how I now help others out of the darkness.
Edgardo
I am a stay-at-home Dad with triplets. Find out what I've learned by choosing to parent in a non-traditional role.
Malafrena
I will share my view on polyamory. I have multiple romantic partners -- in permanent, respectful, non-monogamous relationships, with the consent of all parties.
Norm
Living under two extreme regimes in World War II, I fled with thousands of other refugees from the second Soviet occupation in 1944. I will share the story of my life under those regimes and my four-year experience in a refugee camp.
Samuel
I am a High Priest of the Wiccan Faith and a Chaplain at the University of Alberta. I will share with you the joys and conflicts I experienced creating a formal church for Wiccans.
Sheila
I provided humanitarian aid when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. I could have never imagined what I witnessed and experienced there. It became a powerful story that changed my life.
