Supporters of One Book One Barrington, the Barrington Area Library’s community reading initiative, are hosting a special movie showing in the Barrington High School Auditorium tonight! They’re playing the HBO film biography, Temple Grandin, at 7 p.m. for this FREE event, followed by a presentation about resilience and children with special needs.
Temple Grandin, a woman with autism, overcame the limitations imposed on her by her condition to become a Ph.D. and expert in the field of animal husbandry. Today, she is one of the top scientists in the humane livestock handling industry.
The program at the library tonight is called, “Special Needs & Building Resilience” and it is sponsored by the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation, the Barrington Area Library, Barrington Area Special Voices, and the PTO Presidents Council.
Along with the movie, you will hear a brief presentation about children with special needs and resilience given by members of Barrington Area Special Voices.
There is no fee to attend the program, which lasts from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Barrington High School Auditorium and registration is required.
