John Donvan, a multiple Emmy Award-winning correspondent for ABC and the moderator of the Intelligence Squared U.S. debate series, and Caren Zucker, a Peabody award winning television news producer and co-writer of the six-part PBS series “Autism Now,” will make an appearance at the State Library’s Targeting Autism Forum on Friday, March 11, to talk about their new landmark book, “In a Different Key: The Story of Autism.” The book has received countless accolades. The Washington Post calls “In a Different Key,” “Remarkable, a riveting tale about how a seemingly rare childhood disorder became a salient fixture in our cultural landscape.” Temple Grandin says, “It is essential reading for anyone who is interested in how society treats those who are different”
This book talk will take place on Friday, March 11 at 10 a.m. and will be open to the public. If you will not be attending the entire forum, but would like to come for the book talk, please arrive between 9:45-10 a.m. There will be a Q & A following the talk. No books will be sold at the event, however, there will be a book signing, so feel free to bring your own copy to be signed.
The Targeting Autism Forum project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
