Jeevanjot "JJ" Singh Kapur

JJ Kapur is a first-generation Sikh American and a proud Iowan. After graduating from Stanford University, he returned to his hometown of Des Moines as an AmeriCorps Lead for America Fellow. He serves with CultureALL, a nonprofit bringing Iowans together from diverse backgrounds to create a shared sense of community. At CultureALL, JJ’s building a human library across Iowa called Open Book. Open Book storytellers are Iowans from different cultures, religions and identities. They give “Readers” the chance to “check out” a “book” from our catalog, listen to a chapter from their life and have a conversation with the storyteller. JJ hopes readers walk away from an Open Book experience with a newfound appreciation for what happens when we choose not to “judge a book by its cover.”
