About the CU Living Library

The CU Living Library: Dialoguing Difference event is an opportunity for people to engage with one another around stories in a supportive environment which encourages questions and open mindedness. “Books” -- people who are willing to share stories about their lives and diverse personal backgrounds -- and small groups of “Readers” will engage in brave, in-depth, authentic conversations across gender, race, nationality, religion, and ability. This event will allow students and campus community members to experience positive, authentic conversations, learning about themselves and others.

Organized by:  Megan WelshJuleah Swanson, Lindsay Roberts.
