Spending quality time with a good book that opens up new thinking is always something readers strive for. Being able to have a one-on-one conversation with the author of that book to create a meaningful dialogue is even better. Wilton Library’s Human Library, on Saturday, March 24, from 1 to 5, provides just that opportunity.
As the program name might imply, the stories available on that day are human “books;” community members who have volunteered to share their stories in order to break down barriers based on age, race, sexual orientation, religion, ability, lifestyle choices, or other aspects of their identity. The library is offering 20 “books” ranging in topics from ageism to anorexia, racism to surviving sexual assault, from being Christian to being Pagan, from defeating addiction to living with Alzheimer’s and much more.
