Author Talk: John Elder Robison

John Elder Robison

Thursday, November 30, 5-7 p.m.
W. E. B. Du Bois Library
Floor 26, Room 2601 

John Elder Robison’s works include his memoir Look Me In the Eye (2007); Be Different (2011), a how-to guide for grownups with autism; Raising Cubby (2013), the story of raising his autistic son; and Switched On (2016), about his participation as a research subject in brain studies. Robison is active in the autism civil rights movement and is a strong supporter of neurodiversity – the idea that autism and ADHD are a natural part of humanity, essential for our success, and should be honored and accepted even as we work to relieve any disability they may cause.   

Books will be available for sale at the talk.

The Author Talk Series is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Library, and co-sponsored by Autism Connections,  College of Education, Communication Disorders Department and Pathlight Group.
