A Human Library is an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals volunteer as human 'books' and participants in the event can 'read' the book- meaning they would have a one on one conversation with the volunteer and share in a dialogue about that individual's experience. 'Books' are volunteers from all walks of life who have experienced discrimination based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability and other aspects of their life. The Human Library provides the opportunity for the community to share and understand the experiences of others in their community. Human Library Chicago will hold an event with National Veterans Art Museum, which is dedicated to the collection, preservation and exhibition of art inspired by combat and created by veterans. We are excited to feature some Books that regularly share their experience with the museum as well as our diverse array of Books on all topics.
