Sometimes the root of understanding one another's stories is getting answers to the difficult questions and during The Human Library™ those questions are expected, appreciated and answered. This event is meant to challenge the labels we put on others by participating in a unique reading experience; where real people are on loan as "books." "Readers" are given a positive framework for a 20-30 minute conversation to connect, inquire and challenge stereotypes and prejudices that separate us.
This year's Human Library is a feature of Storyfort, during the week of Treefort Music Fest, Friday, March 22nd 3-7 pm and Saturday, March 23rd 1-5 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
