Mark your calendars - September 19, 2021 10:00 AM-1:00 PM PST in Sedona, Arizona. In four years over 100 people have shared their stories with 'readers' as Human Books. Readers observe their own prejudices, learn about people different than themselves and are open for creating new understanding and harmony in this worldwide movement for social change. You can BEGIN NOW - RESERVE YOUR SPOT - learn about the stereotypes offered in the Fifth Annual Sedona Human Library through mvies, books, articles that will prepare you newly for this dynamic and transformative event for our community and beyond!
A Human Book is a person who has volunteered to challenge prejudice through respectful conversation with members of the public who borrow them. They will have a title that relates to their experience of prejudice and/or discrimination due to issues such as race, sex, age, disability, sexual preference, gender identity, class, religion/belief, lifestyle choices or other aspects of who they are. The title they choose directly reflects this in order to challenge the Reader to reflect on the stigmatization that occurs, e.g. Refugee, Muslim, Homeless, etc.
Who are the Readers in the Human Library?
The Human Library™ offers its patrons the opportunity to become readers - checking a Human Book out on loan for a conversation on the topic/issue that they represent. e.g. a Past Felon would talk about stereotypes and prejudices that he or she faces in job searching, dating, voting and adjusting to everyday life and they would answer any question the reader may have about this topic
