Humans of Minneapolis Book Launches

A pair of upcoming events kick off the book based on Stephanie Glaros’s popular blog full of photos and interviews

The blog “Humans of Minneapolis” has grown in popularity over the past years due to Stephanie Glaros’s combination of photos and interviews that depict regular people on the street, telling their stories in a way that enriches the broader understanding of who we are and why each of our narratives is so compelling. It’s sharable, compassionate stuff, and Glaros is kicking off the publication of her new book based on the blog with a pair of events open to the public.

On November 14, Glaros will appear at a signing and talk at the Hennepin County Central Library, with books available for sale. On November 17, there will be a release party for the book at Modist Brewing Company in Minneapolis (at which Glaros will also appear).

The book is available for order, and it’s pretty much a visual and storytelling feast. The photography and design are both exquisite, as is Glaros’s empathetic knack for getting people to open up about who they are and how they see the world. It’s also pretty much perfectly timed for holiday gift giving.

Check out the Humans of Minneapolis blog here. Both of next week’s events are free and open to the public.
