Human Books Coming to Brighton Campus Library May 1: Reserve Your Spot Now

Reservations are now being taken for our third annual MCC Human Books Event, which will take place on Wednesday, May 1, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the LeRoy V. Good Library on the Brighton campus. These are conversations, not presentations--Human Books have a story to tell, and this is your chance to talk with some very interesting people.

This year's Human Books include a Holocaust survivor; a gay rights pioneer; a Zen Buddhist priest; a US Army and Navy veteran; a parent of a transgender child; a local author; and a variety of people who will talk about their ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds, including biracial, Muslim, indigenous, and Native American.

This event utilizes an innovative and positive approach to challenge stereotypes and prejudices in a constructive and non-confrontational atmosphere of exploration and discovery. It is intended to encourage dialogue as a path toward developing intellectual curiosity, empathy, and empowerment through the exploration of new perspectives.

Please visit for more information about our Human Books and to reserve time with them. A limited number of seats are available for each session. Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to reserve their spots.

Faculty: Please consider displaying the attached flyer. If you would like to arrange to bring a class to the event or if you have any questions, please contact librarians Andrea Kingston (ext. 2313; or Alice Wilson (ext. 2304;
