135: Ryan Dowd

Why we should all care about how we interact with the homeless…and how we need to consider our communication style when dealing with everyone in our lives.

Circulating Ideas

At the 2018 ALA Annual Conference, Steve chats with Ryan Dowd, author of The Librarian’s Guide to Homelessness, about how to use empathy-driven enforcement with individuals experiencing homelessness and working with Emilio Estevez to promote the new film The Public.

2. Ryan on BedRyan Dowd began volunteering at his local homeless shelter when he was 13 years old.  He joined the staff in college and became Executive Director immediately after law school.  In the last few years he has shared his experiences with libraries through the ALA book, “The Librarian’s Guide to Homelessness” and by providing trainings for libraries across the country.  Ryan is ecstatically married with two children.  His favorite book is Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac.
