A day before our nation celebrates her veterans, the stories of soldiers from around the world will be the focus of a special Human Library. Thursday, November 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Salmon River room of the Pond Student Union Building, the public is invited to hear a tale from a living, breathing book. At a Human Library, small groups gather around the human book who then shares a chapter from their life story. “We’ve chosen to highlight veterans and their service to their country,” said Amy Campbell, Public Services Supervisor. “Currently confirmed ‘books’ include a woman who served as a dog trainer for the Marines and a veteran who served in the Pakistan Army. We'll also hear from a local man who was part of an effort to bring the remains of an American serviceman back to the United States.” Refreshments will be served. The Human Library is sponsored by the Marshall Public Library, Idaho State University College of Arts and Letters, and New Knowledge Adventures.
