Autism Activist Temple Grandin to Speak at Clarion University on March 29

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 @ 12:03 AM

Posted by Aly Delp

temple_grandin_photoCLARION, Pa. – Dr. Temple Grandin will speak at 7:00 p.m. on March 29 in the auditorium of Marwick-Boyd Fine Arts Center at Clarion University.

The event is free and open to the public.

Her visit is part of the 2017-18 Mary L. Seifert Cultural Series, themed “Work and the American Dream.”

Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, is a firm believer that the world needs all kinds of minds and that her ability to think in pictures allows her to solve problems that others cannot. During her talk, she will explain the need for different types of thinkers, provide a first-person view from the mind of someone living on the autism spectrum, and share her struggles in pursuit of the American dream.

Grandin earned a doctorate in animal sciences from the University of Illinois. She is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University. She has written six books, is an autism activist, and was the subject of a 2010 award-winning HBO biopic starring Claire Danes.

A variety of Grandin’s books, ranging in price from $10 to $25, will be available for purchase with cash, check or credit card. Grandin will sign books before and after her talk.

Seating is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for Clarion University students with valid ID and at 6:30 p.m. for the general public.

Parking will be available after 4:00 p.m. in Lots 11, 12, 14, 16, and R.
