Human Books 2017

WOMAD’s Human Books are a whole shelf of people waiting for you to check them out of the library to “read” for 30 minutes …. a huge variety of interesting and extraordinary people that you would never normally meet in your everyday life.

Our Human Books hope to intrigue, interest and inspire. They include; those who have experienced prejudice in their lives, people with fascinating jobs, people who have created, experienced or happened upon something extraordinary, and those whose experience of life gives them a certain insight, knowledge, or understanding.

For more information and background about how Human Books works, including books from previous years, visit our blog site here. Please take a look before you apply.
