Be A Book in The Human Library

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 this unique reading experience; where real people are on loan as "books". "Readers" are given a positive framework for 20-30 minute conversation to connect, inquire and challenge stereotypes and prejudices that separate us.

This year's Human Library will be a feature of Storyfort during Treefort Music Festat the Owhyee Tavern. Books will be on loan 3-7 pm on Friday, March 22nd and 1-5 pm on Saturday, March 23rd.
