Human Book Application
We could not have a Human Library without the Human Books! As a Human Book, you are not just a storyteller per se that shares in one direction. This is about having an interactive conversation that engages two people - the Human Book and the "Reader."
We are looking for volunteers to be a Human Book that can have respectful conversation with members of the public. Applying to become a Human Book does not guarantee a spot on the Book Shelf. We will need to ensure we have a wide variety of books without too much duplication.
APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MAY 3, 2019.
The Human Library event will be on Saturday, June 22, 2019 from 11:00am - 3:00pm.
Human Books will need to:
Fill out the application form below.
Attend the Human Book Orientation meeting on Sunday, May 19th, 2019 at 1:00pm to learn more about logistics for the day of the event, how you should prepare leading up to the day and for the day of the event, and meet the other human books.
On the day of the event, arrive by 10:00am and be available for public "readings" through the end of the event at 3:00pm. (Please do not leave early.)
Email two photos that we can use for promoting your book: (1) head shot photo of you, (2) a photo or image that represents your topic. Send high resolution images, if possible. Email the photos by Monday, May 6th, 2019 to email@example.com.
Commit to authentic and respectful dialogue about your topic with your readers without self-promotion or proselytizing.
