The aim of these events is to let people choose from the various categories of human books available. Once you have chosen your book, you get to have an intimate chat with them for 30 minutes. Anybody can be a book, as long as they have interesting experiences and stories to share and fit into the categories and provided by Fad.
At their debut in March 2017, 10 human books were available, the number of books are expected to double at the next event. Talking about his favourite books, Fad says that, out of all the books that he has managed to collect so far, “surviving domestic violence and self-loathing narcissists are my favourite human books as they instill courage and deter the strangeness in you.”
Sharing stories can be emotionally overwhelming for the narrators, when asked whether the books were moved before or after one session, Fad says, “After each reading session we ask the human books how they feel and if they are emotionally equipped to share more.” In the 30 minutes reading time, not only can you listen to experiences, but you can also ask questions, making it a thoroughly interactive session!
