Human Library Event Offers Opportunities for Engaging Conversations, Nov. 10

Students at a desk

Students participating in the first Human Library event at Fairfield in 2016.

The DiMenna-Nyselius Library invites students, faculty, and staff to challenge stereotypes and prejudices by participating in the worldwide movement for social change.

On Wednesday, November 10, the DiMenna-Nyselius Library will once again host the annual Fairfield University Human Library event. The Human Library is a worldwide movement for social change that challenges stereotypes based on race, religion, sexual orientation, class, gender identity, lifestyle choices, disability, or other aspects of life. This year the event will be offered in two formats — in-person at the Library, and online — on November 10 from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m., and from 2 to 4 p.m. Those who would like to attend virtually will need to register for the event.

During the event, human books — in the form of Fairfield University students, faculty, staff, or community members — volunteer to share their life experiences and answer questions that address stereotypes, prejudices, stigmas, or taboo subjects. Readers are current Fairfield University students, faculty, or staff. Book topics include titles such as Autistic, Feminist, Model Minority, Sexually Abused, Disabled, and Grew Up on Welfare in Upper-Middle Class Home. First-year students will receive FYE Thrive credit for participating.
