The Ross Pendergraft Library and Technology Center at Arkansas Tech University will play host to its Human Library 2016 event on Tuesday, Nov. 1, and Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m in RPL room 300.

Information from the library staff defines a human library as an opportunity for an individual to tell his or her story to an audience in much the same fashion as an author would share a story with a reader.

Human Library 2016 will feature stories about diversity and inclusion. Each story is scheduled to last approximately 30 minutes. All students, faculty, staff and members of the community are invited to attend.

Below are the titles and brief descriptions, as provided by the library staff, for Human Library 2016 at the Ross Pendergraft Library and Technology Center.
