On March 26th 2016, Human Library Chicago held an event at Deborah’s Place in the North Lawndale community of Chicago. Deborah’s Place is the largest provider or supportive housing for women experiencing homelessness in Chicago. Our event was open to the residents and staff of Deborah’s Place, but also to the public. Take a look at our event: all of the photographs can be seen here.
We featured more Books at this event than any other. Our books at this event included Veteran, Senior Citizen, Biracial, Asexual, Baha’i, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Arab Expat, Transgender Minister, Polyamorous Couple, HIV Positive, Chronic Depression, and Adoptee.
We would like to thank staff at Deborah’s Place for inviting us to use their space and for working with us on creating such a successful event. Additionally, we’d like to thank Southside Occupational Academy whose Production Class students screen printed our t-shirts. Thank you to all that participated.
