Now is your opportunity to come face to face with a human book, ask questions and hear, first-hand, from people who have lived to tell unforgettable stories.
As Canada moves closer to its 150th Anniversary, we must grapple with what it means to live on Native land, to be Indigenous, to be a newcomer and/or a settler. This particular Human Library hopes to explore notions of home- coming home, leaving home, finding home, and losing home as it relates to identity and our place(s) in the world.
Each participant in our human library can be checked out, like a book, for 25 minutes of one-on- one time.
Hear a story, share an insight and gain perspective.
This event is open to students, staff and community members.
Drop in or register on-line. Books are checked out on a first come, first serve basis.
When: Fri. Dec. 2, 2016, from 11 am-3 pm
Where: East Common Room, Hart House
Cost: Free / Registration encouraged
