What's a human library?

A human library is one in which the books are humans with stories. The connecting theme is that the books' stories revolve around the person's experiences with prejudice, discrimination, or hardships beyond their control. The purpose is to promote understanding within a diverse community. 

"Readers," the people coming to the event, will browse the shelves and choose a book to sit down with. The book will tell their story allowing for the reader to ask questions. It is our wish to provide a safe place for candid conversations.
