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.

Our collection will be composed of individuals representing groups in our Towson University community that are somehow exposed to stigma, prejudice and/or discrimination. Meet our “books”, break down societal prejudices, and get a deeper understanding of the TU community. Remember: “Don’t Judge a Book by the Cover”. Send inquiries to Librarian Sarah Gilchrist, sgilchrist@towson.edu. The event will take place in the University Union, Rooms 314, 315, and 316.
