Do you have a story that can challenge prejudices or stereotypes? Sign-up by 10/15 to be a Human Book!

The 6th annual Human Library event at Fairfield University, part of a worldwide movement for social change, will take place on Wed. November 10th from 10am-12pm and 2-4pm.  Human Books will share their story through one-on-one conversation with "readers". 

We are looking for individuals to sign-up to be a "Human Book" by October 15th to share a story that can challenge stereotypes or prejudices at the Human Library event. Students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members can sign-up on the event website. Students, faculty, and staff will have the option to participate fully in-person or virtually (virtual only for alumni and community).  FYE Thrive credit is available for first-year students.

The Human Library® is designed to build a positive framework for conversations that can challenge stereotypes and prejudices through dialogue. ‘Human Books’ are Fairfield University students, faculty, staff who have volunteered to share their story to break down barriers based on race, religion, sexual orientation, class, gender identity, lifestyle choices, disability or other aspects of their life.

The Human Library provides the opportunity for the Fairfield University community to share and understand the experiences of others.
