Jueun Moon, University of Arkansas Human Library

This semester's Human Library event will be held Nov. 7, 8, and 9 in Holcombe Hall. Check out a human book now!

To promote Chancellor Joe Steinmetz's guiding priority of enriching campus diversity and inclusion, the UARK Human Library will utilize interactive storytelling as a platform to learn about the experiences and perspectives of individuals with compelling personal narratives.

The Human Library is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers. A place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. Sign up now to check out one or more Human Books!

If you would like to discuss including the Human Library event as part of your class's curriculum, please reach out to Tyler Quattlabum, tyquattl@uark.edu.
