Baton Rouge’s Human Library

The East Baton Rouge Parish Library is holding a Human Library event in April as part of the Arts Council’s Ebb and Flow Festival, and again in May at the Main Library on Goodwood. The Human Library is a program in which readers can check out Living Books – people who share the story of their lives, in a fascinating and thought-provoking one-on-one conversation. The program will expand understanding, present different perspectives, and challenge stereotypes through dialogue.

We are now accepting applications for Living Books. If you are part of a group which is frequently misunderstood or marginalized, or if you have a unique life perspective, you may be an excellent candidate! Please fill out the online application for an opportunity to make your voice heard.

For more information, contact Ned Denby at 225-231-3750.
