Call for Books: Be a part of a “Living Library!”

UNT Libraries are looking for “Human Books” to share their unique stories with readers. As a book, your title will communicate a specific identity that you embrace or community that you represent. If parts of your story involve intolerance and prejudices, (e.g. Single Parent, Refugee, Sikh, ADHD, Biracial, etc.), we strongly believe that a book should not be judged by its cover, and invite you to rewrite the preconceived biases surrounding your book through an intimate and engaging Q&A. Share your unique perspective with someone unfamiliar and enlighten your peers that may simply fear what they don’t understand.

A book cannot speak for all members of any particular group, but this initial reading can serve as a path towards progress and empowerment.

To be a Human Book, to volunteer, or to receive more information, please contact UNT Libraries External Relations at ( by April 5, 2018.

The Human Library event will be hosted Thursday, April 12th, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Willis Library Forum.
