What is the Human Library®? The Human Library® actively encourages people not to judge a book by its cover through “human books” (volunteers) who have honest and open discussions about their unique experiences with an audience (their readers) in a safe environment. Many people have great stories to tell, and this is a chance for others to hear them. The Human Library® encourages communication around issues that are often perceived in a negative way. “Human Books” could include stories of racism, bias, addiction, mental illness, disability, ideology, and more.
We encourage looking at the international Human Library website to see examples of “human books.”
The Human Library® at KCL will take place in Winter 2022-23.
“Human Book” applications are due by December 5, 2022.
