Skylar Conover, a rehabilitation counseling graduate student who uses a wheelchair, considers herself an open book. Ask her a question about her disability — she was diagnosed in 2005 with Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy — and she will be eager to answer it. And that’s why she plans to participate in the Human Library again.
A Human Library will be held in the Forum @ Willis Library September 17 and 18, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm each day. Instead of print or electronic resources, the books in this library will be human beings who have experienced prejudice due to issues such as race, gender, age, disability, ethnic origin, class, sexual preference, gender identity, or lifestyle choices.
