Event description
Don't judge a book by its cover. Human Library is an event where readers borrow human books to have respectful, open-minded conversations.

About this Event

Don't judge a book by its cover.

On April 17th, Rotaract Club of Edelweiss invites you to Human Library--an inclusive place where human subjects from different backgrounds act as "open books" and share their stories, up close and personal.

Readers are invited to listen, engage, and ask questions without fear of condemnation as we address challenging topics such as cyberbulling, adoption, being Black in Asia, and sex work. You will participate in a program of speaker talks, small group discussions and interactive workshops, the goal of which is to facilitate respectful and open-minded dialogue to challenge stigmas and stereotypes.

Difficult questions are expected, appreciated and answered.

General admission (March 9 - April 17): HK$200
