Shasta College 2017 Human Library Event
REDDING, CA – Join us at Shasta College for our second annual Human Library event on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at the Shasta College Library
This event is sponsored by the Office of Student Equity and Inclusion; come to the library and we’ll connect you with a human book with an interesting story.
The Human Library is an event originally developed in Copenhagen that is designed to build positive opportunity for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. Real people, are on loan to readers for a 15-30 minute period. Our human books are volunteers; difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered in a safe and respectful environment, often a conversation between you and one or two others. Please come, choose a book that might challenge a stereotype you have or a perspective you’d like to understand more, and spend some time in conversation.
*Potential Book Titles include:
• Formerly Incarcerated
• Veteran – Vietnam Era
• Second Generation American
• Climate Change Activist
• Foster Youth
