A library where the books are people
Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 June | 2-6pm
Don’t Judge a Book By its Cover… especially if they can talk. The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers, a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered. With library card in hand, readers meet their book, hear their tale and share in a dialogue about that individual’s experience of discrimination based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability and other aspects of their life.
The Human Library is an international movement that started in Denmark in the year 2000 and has since made its way through over 30 countries.
