Human Books: Read Between the Minds

Do you know you can check out a human book? You will have an informal conversation with someone who comes from various cultural backgrounds and life experiences. The conversations will be held for 30-minute slots and more than one participant can check out the same book with a maximum of three per human book. Human Library promotes acceptance, celebrates differences and challenges our own assumptions and beliefs. It is a great way to learn and connect through storytelling!
