Thursday, October 3 at The University Club of Toronto
We had a blast with our alumni at Western’s first Human Library event! Designed to break down barriers around challenging topics, Human Library events offer the opportunity for one-on-one conversations that will broaden your understanding and provide deep intellectual engagement.

Western’s first ever Human Library event featured professors from the Department of Philosophy as our “books.” Alumni and friends spent the evening “checking out” a “book” and enjoying stimulating questionsfrom each area of philosophy. Thanks to our Human Library "books" for a wonderful evening!
