Meet history maker Temple Grandin Tuesday, April 30, at 6 p.m. at SKyPAC!

The life story of Temple Grandin, author, speaker, and professor of animal science at Colorado State University, was highlighted in an HBO biopic starring Claire Danes in 2010. At two and a half years old, Grandin was not verbal and exhibited all the symptoms of severe autism. Fortunately, with early intensive speech therapy, her mother’s encouragement, plus good teachers and mentors, Temple was able to succeed despite the challenges.

Now, because of her extensive research, work, and insight into livestock handling, half the cattle in the U.S. are handled in facilities she has designed. An avid autism advocate, expert animal handler, and prolific scholar, Temple was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame (2017) and the Academy of Arts and Sciences (2016). A New York Times bestselling author, as well, she has written Animals in Translation, Thinking in Pictures, The Autistic Brain, and The Way I See It.
