Human Library- Veterans Edition @ISU

Join us on Thursday, November 10 from 5:30pm - 8:30pm in the Salmon River room of the Pond Student Union Building to hear a tale from a living, breathing book. At a Human Library, small groups gather around the human book who then shares a chapter from their life story.
"We've chosen to highlight veterans and their service to their country," said Amy Campbell, Public Services Supervisor. "Currently confirmed, 'books' include a World War II nurse, a dog trainer who served in the United States Marine Corps, and a veteran who served in the Pakistan Army."
Refreshments will be served. The Human Library is sponsored by the Marshall Public Library, Idaho State University College of Arts and Letters, and New Knowledge Adventures.
