Come to Our House For a Heartful Saturday + Free Hugs

Free Hugs

If you aren't familiar with the Free Hugs campaign, it has become an international phenomenon in which ordinary people offer up free embraces to anyone and everyone. The only cost is the bravery and boldness that it might take to reach out to another human being to let them know they are valued and seen. And that is what Denver Public Library's daylong event Our House is all about.
