Join us to share and understand the experiences of others at the First Thursdays Festival! Human Library™ events aim to break down stereotypes and preconceived notions humans have about others by having participants (called "Books") volunteer to tell their stories and other participants (called "Readers") have conversations with these Books.
'Books' are students, faculty, and staff who have volunteered to share their experiences centered around discrimination and/or want to break down barriers based on race, religion, sexual orientation, disability status, occupation, cultural background, age, gender orientation, ethnicity, social status, lifestyle choices, and other aspects of their life.
Participants who wish to have a two way, interpersonal discussion with a Human Book can set up a 20-minute session with a specific Book at the event.
