Real Life Library - Book Application
Do you have a story you'd like to share with the world?

Awesome! We would love to help you tell your story at the Real Life Library!

The next volume of the Real Life Library will be held at the Madison Hawthorne Public Library on Saturday, June 23 from 9:30am to 3pm (about 1 mile east of the Capitol at 2707 E Washington Ave, Madison, WI 53704)

Here is a brief video description of the Real Life Library.

In case you didn't watch that video, we curate people as "Books" to tell a story. We organize a live event and invite other people to come to the event and "Check Out" and "Read" the "Books" by listening.

If selected as a book, you agree to:
1) participate in one storytelling and non-violent communication training from 5:30-8:30pm on June 4 or June 14.
2) attend and share your story up to three times at the June 23 event.
3) have your story video recorded so that it can reach and impact a wider audience.
***All of these will take place in Madison, WI.***

We are curating "Books," people like you, who would like to tell a story (no longer than 20 minutes) that you wish you people knew about you. We aren't expectisusng you to summarize your whole life story. Rather, we hope that you can pick a special story from your life that is rich with details and meaning to share with the world. The story should be specific to you. A personal story, not a pitch for a business.
