What is the Human Library?

The Human Library is an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals who have experienced discrimination volunteer as human "books" and participants at the event can "read" the book--meaning have a one-on-one conversation to hear the book's experiences centered around discrimination. Through conversation and open dialogue, we want to break down barriers and stereotypes of all kinds.

As a participant, you just come to the event, select the book title you are interested in, sit with that book, and listen to their firsthand story of being stereotyped and how they overcame it. You can visit with as many or as few books as you're interested in throughout the day. You can ask any questions while maintaining respect. Come with an open mind.


If you'd like to apply to be a book, please fill out our short survey (takes less than 5 minutes!)

Nowhere Girl: A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood is a “breathless” story about growing up in a family of outlaws. To the young Cheryl Diamond, life felt like one big adventure, whether she was hurtling down the Himalayas in a rickety car or mingling with underworld fixers. Her family appeared to be an unbreakable gang of five. One day they were in Australia, the next in South Africa, the pattern repeating as they crossed continents, changed identities, and erased their pasts. What Diamond didn’t yet know was that she was born into a family fleeing from the highest international law enforcement agencies, a family with secrets that would eventually catch up to all of them. By the time she was in her teens, Diamond had lived dozens of lives and lies, but as she grew older, love and trust turned to fear and violence, and her family—the only people she had in the world—began to unravel. She started to realize that her life itself might be a big con, and the people she loved, the most dangerous of all. With no way out and her identity burned so often that she had no proof she even existed, all that was left was a girl from nowhere. Surviving would require her to escape, and to do so Diamond would have to unlearn all the rules she grew up with. Wild, heartbreaking, and often unexpectedly funny, Nowhere Girl is an impossible-to-believe true story of self-discovery and triumph.

Cheryl Diamond is now a citizen of Luxembourg and lives between there and Rome. Her behind-the-scenes account of life as a teenage model, Model: A Memoir, was published in 2008. Diamond´s second book, Naked Rome, reveals the Eternal City through the eyes of its most fascinating people. Her new book, Nowhere Girl: A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood, is available now.
