Having trouble falling asleep at night?

Madhu Kaza, a “writer, artist and educator,” has a possible solution for you.  She’ll come into your home 15 minutes before bedtime and sit in a chair beside your bed and read to you from your favorite books until you fall asleep.  Then she’ll let herself out and lock the door behind her.  The free service is called Here Is Where We Meet, the title of a 2005 novel by John Berger.  The only requirement is that you fill out a short questionnaire and make an appointment — and get ready to say goodbye to the sheep and the warm milk.
