Living Library

Living Library, 2015

Gee Wesley and Ethan Sherman operated the Living Library, a pop-up reading room with 68 books in honor of the historical year of 1968. Participants were encouraged to borrow a book and donate one in return creating conversation within this lending library. Every week, Gee and Ethan hosted a discussion based on a book that is new to the collection!
