About this Event

If you have ever wanted to research an unfamiliar topic, chances are high that you looked to a book to provide more information on the subject. If you have ever wanted to get to know more about your fellow humans, in the same way, UNT’s Human Library offers a safe and supportive space to help you learn. By attending Human Library, you can look through a catalog just as you would in a traditional library, select a ‘book’ that you are interested in, and sit down with the book to ‘read’ by having a conversation with the person representing the title.

After engaging in these conversations, our hope is that you will gain empathy and understanding about another person’s reality.

  • 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. — Guest Panel Discussion with Individuals Representing the Following:
  • 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. — One-on-One Book Q & A Checkout
    • Start a conversation with one of our 10 books!
