Save the Date! A Human Books Event is Coming to the Downtown Campus

A Human Books Event will take place at the Downtown Campus on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The event is intended to encourage dialogue as a path toward intellectual curiosity, empathy, and empowerment through the exploration of new perspectives. Members of the MCC and greater Rochester community who have a unique perspective to represent will act as "Human Books," and MCC students, faculty, and staff will have an opportunity to borrow them for 30-minute conversations, either one-on-one or in small groups.

Andrea Kingston (Library Services) is leading the Human Books Event planning team, which includes Diane Clements (ESOL/TRS), Tokeya Graham (ENG/PHL), and Mary Timmons (Library Services) from the Downtown Campus, as well as Kristin Lowe (President's Office) and Alice Wilson (Library Services).

Information about our "books" will appear on the event's website:
