Never Judge a Book by its Cover

Human Books


Would you or a service user from your organisation like to challenge negative perceptions, prejudice, discrimination, stigma and stereotyping? Then why not become a Talking Book with HFVC’s ‘Human Library’.
This exciting project aims to break down barriers and create a better understanding through interaction and dialogue between people. Just like in a real library, a visitor to the Human Library can choose a Book from a range of titles, however, the difference is the Books are people and reading is a conversation.

The Human Library is a place where real people are on loan to readers. A place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered.

The launch of the HFVC’s Human Library will take  place at Lyric Square, Hammersmith, W6 0DA on the 28th September 2016 11:00 – 14:00 and will continue over a 9 month period in 9 other locations across Hammersmith and Fulham

Get involved: We are looking to recruit individuals to be Books. This can be for a 2-3 hour Library event or several. Training will be provided and travel expenses paid
If you would like to get involved or want more information, contact Ann-Marie
