What Is A Human Library?

Imagine a place where you don’t read from an author, but hear of their experiences first-hand, without prejudice. The idea is that you can actually talk to your ‘book’, ask questions and introspect leaving you with a wider perspective.

The human library concept first began in Copenhagen, Denmark. Delhi is the fourth state in India to host this event after Indore, Mumbai and Hyderabad.

In a world where everyone has multiple opinions and we hide behind the face of social media to express them, the Human Library breaks barriers. It teaches you to reconnect with face-to-face conversations and idea sharing.

Human Library Categories

The Delhi edition of the Human Library will feature 11 categories ranging from a Buddhism practitioner to a recovering drug abuser, a female solo traveller to a tea-seller turned author, victims of bullying to cancer survivors. There will also be a history chronicler and several other interesting variations.

All the human books have an in-depth knowledge of their subject. Some are first-timers, others have been present through the other editions in India.
