Dialogue among Diversity: Refusing to Judge a Book by Its Cover 

On Thursday morning, librarian Nikki Krysak and English teacher Molly Shepley spoke in Chapel about an event they had worked to bring to campus: The Human Library. First proposed by Nikki, this initiative fit very well with the work Molly and Dean of International Students Florian Rexhepi had been doing to foster dialogue among the diverse members of our community. As Nikki explained it, "The Human Library is a living, breathing library where humans are the books and the stories are their lives. Readers are invited to browse the catalog and check out a human book for a 15-minute one-on-one conversation, during which they can learn and ask questions. The event builds community by providing an opportunity for the reader to challenge prejudices and learn about individuals who have had different life experiences from their own."

In his memory, family members representing the fund make gifts to local people and organizations that do great things in our community.
