Temple Grandin’s wildly hailed 1986 autobiography, Emergence: Labeled Autistic, expressed the autistic experience as none had done before. Her work as a livestock-handling equipment designer has created humane conditions for cattle across the U.S.
Beloved for her contributions to the animal welfare and autism advocacy movements, she will appear Tuesday evening at the First Baptist Church in Decatur in connection with her new book, The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum. Hosted by the Georgia Center for the Book.
