Lindenwood University’s 2011-12 Speaker Series will continue with renowned livestock innovator, author, and autism advocate Temple Grandin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, at Lindenwood’s Bezemes Family Theatre at 2300 West Clay Street in St. Charles. Admission is free and open to the public.
Because interest in this event is high, visitors are encouraged to arrive early; doors will open at 6 p.m., and saving of seats will not be allowed. To accommodate expected overflow crowds, a live video feed of the event will be broadcast in the university’s Emerson Black Box Theater, located with the Bezemes Theater in the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts; the Dunseth Auditorium in Lindenwood’s Harmon Hall; and the Lindenwood University Cultural Center auditorium at 400 N. Kingshighway, two blocks north of the St. Charles campus. The event will also be broadcast live at www.lindenwood.edu/lutv; click on “Watch LUTV Live Now” on the left side of the screen. The event will also be rebroadcast numerous times on LUTV.
Personnel will be available outside the Scheidegger Center to direct visitors still in their cars to the overflow locations if the Bezemes and Emerson theaters are full.
Though she did not talk until she was 3 ½ years old and her parents were told she should be institutionalized, Grandin grew up to become the most accomplished person with autism in the world. The author of several books on livestock handling and autism, Grandin has designed the facilities in which half the cattle in the United States are handled. She is currently a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and speaks around the world on autism and livestock handling.
The 2011-12 Lindenwood University Speaker Series will conclude Tuesday, April 10, with a 7 p.m. presentation by actor and author Hill Harper.
