Have a conversation with a local person who has an interesting story. These volunteers are “Human Books.” Check one out and you become the “reader.” Meet someone you might not normally meet.

The Human Library, started in Denmark in 2000, is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. It is a worldwide movement where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. For more information on the international organization visit humanlibrary.org.
