We were thrilled to partner with Dr. Ruby Cain and her graduate students in Ball State University's Cultural Identities and Community Engagement course for this pop-up event. This event was held at Plymouth Congregational Church at 501 W. Berry Street. The students and Dr. Cain came up from Muncie to Fort Wayne to participate in and learn from this April 13th pop-up so they could then plan their own Human Library event in Muncie at a later date.
This event was free and open to the public. Twenty of our human Books were present to share their stories with Readers who came to ‘check them out.’
Our first HLFW Pop-Up Event is slated for Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Walb Ballroom at Purdue Fort Wayne (PFW.) We are thrilled to partner with Alisa Thompson, Asst Dir of the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs. This event is for PFW students as well as the general public. Many of our beloved Books will be present to share their stories with Readers who are eager to listen, dialogue and learn. We hope to see you there!
