Meet a 'Living Book'!

Murdoch University’s first Living Library event is part of Harmony Week and we have a great range of living books sharing stories on the theme of "Traditions of my Culture".

Living Books are the type of people you mightn't have had the opportunity to meet.

This month, they'll be on hand in our Living Library to share Noongar, Bardi stories, or tales from Palestine, Iraq, India, East Timor and more.

Visitors to the Living Library each choose their ‘book’ and enjoy a unique story about life from another perspective.

‘Loans’ are for 5-7 minutes at a time - everyone's welcome!

When: Thursday, 17 March, 11.30am-1:00pm
Where: South St Campus Library, North Wing Level 2, 24/7 Common Area 

This is a collaborative project between Equity and Social Inclusion, Murdoch Institute of Technology’s LACE program and the University Library.
