Join Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) for the annual Author Series Learning Community Event featuring Dr. Temple Grandin, author of “Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism.” This learning community celebrates and supports the unique talents of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Wilson Center for the Arts, 7 – 8:30 p.m. 11901 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32246 Dr. Grandin, considered the most accomplished and well-known adult with autism in the world, has been featured on National Public Radio as well as major television programs such as ABC's Primetime Live and 20/20. Her fascinating story has also been the subject of a 2010 film. In “Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism,” Dr. Grandin explores a variety of topics related to autism, including animal behavior, religion and visual thought, among others. In addition to participating in FSCJ Author Series events, we encourage our faculty to adopt the book for use and discussion during Spring Term classes.
