Book Applications: Human Library Event

Rohrbach Library and the KU Commission on Human Diversity will sponsor The Human Library 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 2. The Human Library® is, in the true sense of the word, a library of people. We host events where readers can borrow human beings serving as open books and have conversations they would not normally have access to. Every human book from our bookshelf represents a group in our society that is often subjected to prejudice, stigmatization or discrimination because of their lifestyle, diagnosis, belief, disability, social status, ethnic origin, etc. (https://humanlibrary.org). We are currently accepting book applications. Anyone can become a book: students, staff, faculty or community members. Please consider becoming a book and/or spreading the word to those who have a story to tell. The Human Library organization will provide online training for all books. Please submit an application online by Friday, March 8.

Patricia Ann Brenner, Commission on Human Diversity
