This year to celebrate World Mosquito Day 2012, The Malaria Centre at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, will host a human library: experts and friends of the Malaria Centre and the wider School community will be 'on loan' instead of books. Guests will be able to 'borrow' up to 5 human books and will circulate around the library to the sounds of our in house 1930's band.

A complimentary cocktail and south-Indian canapes will be included in the price.
Entertainment will be provided by musician Emily O'Hara and singer, Patricia Hammond, 'the Canadian nightingale'.

Mosquito Day honours August 20th 1897 when Sir Ronald Ross made the discovery that malaria is transmitted by mosquitos and is inspired by the tea party held in his honour at the Ross Institute on 20th August 1931 - in this spirit, there will be a 1930's/tropical theme to the event as well as celebrating the contemporary work of malaria centre members across the world.
