On February 6 at 8PM (ET/PT), HBO will premiere an original film based on the inspirational true story of Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes. Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism. Temple is a highly successful doctor of animal sciences, a best-selling author, and an internationally renowned autism advocate.
To support the autism community and celebrate the film, HBO and Barnes & Noble will host a special book signing and discussion with Temple Grandin on Monday, Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. at Barnes & Noble at 150 East 86th St. (at Lexington Ave.) in New York. HBO and Barnes & Noble invite the public – especially parents, friends and advocates of individuals with autism – to this free event.
Information related to autism and the HBO film will be displayed in all 775 Barnes & Noble stores and at bn.com/templegrandin, including a free, downloadable coloring book that tells Temple’s story through illustrations created by artists with autism. You can download the coloring book through February 17 at bn.com/templegrandin and at HBO.com. From the Foundation for Educating Children with Autism
