VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota will host the “Human Library Project: Don’t Judge a Book by it’s Cover” symposium Oct. 18 from 4-7 p.m. on the second floor of the I.D. Weeks Library on USD’s campus.
Volunteers will become human books, sharing their stories through one-on-one conversations on a range of different topics.
Sponsored by University Libraries, the Office for Diversity, TRIO Student Services and the Disability Services Center, USD’s event is part of the global Human Library Project which began in 2010 in Copenhagen in response to violence. The goal is to break down barriers of prejudice and stereotypes and create bridges of understanding.
