This event will run from 10:00am-4:00pm. It will feature “human books” who will be “on loan” for readers to engage in open dialogue on a variety of personal and social issues. Readers can meet one-on-one or in small groups of 2-3 with a “human book” for brief “loan periods” throughout the day. If you would like to be a “human book” and have a story to tell, we would love to hear from you!
