The original manuscript was written by William Osborne Dapping, who would go on to become a respected Central New York journalist, winning a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of a 1929 prison riot for The Auburn, N.Y., Citizen-Advertiser.

Woody Register teaches post-Civil War U.S. history, is chair of the Department of History, and directs the American Studies Program at the University of the South (Sewanee). Additional information on “The Muckers” can be found in Register’s Syracuse University Magazine article.

    During this event, human books from the SU community representing a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, areas of expertise, and life experiences will share their stories in conversation with individual “readers”. The event is intended to encourage people from different backgrounds to talk with and learn from each other in a safe environment.

    Human books–SU faculty, staff and students from a variety of campus departments–will lead one-on-one or small group conversations for 20 minutes at a time to share stories about their experiences or backgrounds.

    The event is open to the campus community and no preregistration is required, although there will be an opportunity to reserve human books for a specific time if desired.

    SU’s Human Library is part of a regional Human Library program supported by the Central NY Library Resources Council. Event partners currently include the Library and Information Science Student Association (LISSA) from the School of Information Studies, the Office of Learning Communities, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, and the Slutzker Center for International Services.

    The first Human Library program was held in 2000 in Copenhagen, Denmark (see http://www.humanlibrary.org). Since then, similar events have been organized in libraries, schools and other institutions around the world.
