Human Library comes to Dhaka

This July, get ready to witness a library come alive!
Have you guessed it yet? Yes, you got it right! The most awaited time has finally arrived for Dhaka to experience its first ever Human Library! We are launching the Human Library Dhaka on July 29th from 2:00-6:00 PM at the Gyantapas Abdur Razzak Bidyapeeth.

Where is the venue?
Gyantapas Abdur Razzak Bidyapeeth: House no. 60, Dhanmondi 7/A, Dhaka-1205, Bangladesh.
The place where the “Ajo” restaurant was situated before.

How will the Library function?
People from different walks of life will be presented as books. The readers will be given a list of books and they will choose one book to borrow for a period of 20 minutes. They will engage in an interactive, one-to-one conversation where the book will narrate his/her experiences and the reader(s) will try to understand the book better by asking questions. A book can be chosen by multiple readers (many to one session) but a reader can only choose one book.

Who are the Human Books?
People who have experienced stereotypes or prejudice because of their race/color/faith/gender/appearance/academic background or any other lifestyle choices or incidents.
For Example: A Madrasah Student or a stereotyped divorcee. The books have already been shortlisted for the event!

Who can attend the event and how?
It is open for all! Since this is the first time, on-spot registration will be done on a first come first serve basis. Once you register, you will receive a time slot for your conversation with the book.

**NO REGISTRATION FEE**

So mark the date on your calendar if you would like to experience something new and learn from real people and real conversations!
