This event for adult readers hosted by the Fishers Library offers an opportunity to learn more about diverse populations through persons with lived experiences of stereotyping, bias, and prejudice. Here you can borrow a person who is a Human Book and have a 30-minute conversation about their story. You will have the opportunity to unjudge someone, ask questions, possibly learn something new, and perhaps talk to someone you normally would not have the opportunity to meet otherwise. In this safe place, you have a chance to examine and explore your own conscious and subconscious biases. This is an impactful opportunity to learn, explore, and embrace diversity. Difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered.
You might choose from titles such as Child of an Alcoholic, Police Officer, Suicide Survivor, Transgender, Asian-American, CODA, Depression, Minister, Immigrant, Jewish, Neurodiverse, Veteran, among others.
You may read one Book or stay to read more! If you would like to know more about the Human Library, check out https://humanlibrary.org/ Registration requested but not required.
