Friday Feature: Temple Grandin

One of the advantages of living near a college is that you have access to interesting speakers.

One of the advantages of working at a college is that you sometimes get invited to small group sessions with those speakers.

Today, I got to do both.

Dr. Temple Grandin, a professor of animal science at Colorado State University, who is perhaps as famous for her outspokenness about her autism as her business and teaching, spoke at York College tonight. This afternoon, I got to participate in a Q & A.

Pretty cool.

If you haven't heard of Dr. Grandin, check out
this piece in The New Yorker about not just Dr. Grandin, but about autism itself.
