Apply to be a Human "Book"
What to Expect at The Human Library
The Human Library event brings together human “books” and “readers” in order for the University community to embrace diversity through conversation and understanding of personal experiences. We hope the event will provide the Saint Rose community members with the opportunity to meet and talk with someone they would not normally encounter, helping them understand the experiences of others.
We are seeking individuals willing to share their stories as a Human Book. All those who agree to be a Human Book should expect to join in the following:
Participate in the Human Library event on February 22nd 2020:
Craft a title and brief description of your book.
Be willing to share your story with others
Be able to communicate with Human Library participants without judgment.
Create and maintain a respectful, safe environment that encourages dialogue.
Provide feedback on your Human Library experience.
