We would love to help you tell your story at the Real Life Library Volume 8: Connecting through Curiosity on Saturday, May 18 at Verona Public Library.
We are also collecting applications from people who would love to share a personal story at future Real Life Library and Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters collaborations!
Never heard of the Real Life Library? A brief video description of what it is and why we co-created it is just below.
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. 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 expecting 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.
If selected as a book, you will need to agree to:
1) Participate in one storytelling and connected communication training (5:30-8:30pm on Thursday, May 2, 2019 OR Tuesday, May 6, 2019).
2) Attend and share your story two times at the live event (11am - 3pm on Saturday, May 18, 2019).
3) Additionally, you'll have your story video recorded so that it can reach and impact a wider audience (we will record in a separate room on the day-of the live event).
***All of these activities will take place in Verona, WI.***
