The Human Library™ is an international initiative designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. It’s a place where real people are on loan to readers, and a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered.
As in a traditional library, visitors to the Human Library can choose Books from a range of titles. But at the Human Library, Books are people, and the reading is a conversation! Read a Living Book and learn about a different culture or community through questions and conversations.
This year’s titles include:
- Person who is an Immigrant
- Member of Jewish Faith Community
- Veteran with PTSD
- Single Parent/Survivor of Suicide Loss
- Parent of Child with Autism
- Member of the Muslim Faith Community
- Person raised by parent with mental illness
- Person with Invisible Illness
- Member of the Hindu Faith Community
- Success and Life After Incarceration
- Member of the Mormon Faith Community
- Woman of Color, Member of the LGBTQ community
- Person from the Blind Community
The Human Library is designed to be a welcoming, inclusive, non-partisan space with no political agenda. Questions? Send an email to [email protected] or call Allison Jessing, HCLS Events and Seminars Manager, at 410.313.7750.
