Temple Grandin, widely known for handling livestock with the lessons she learned from her autism and the subject of the award-winning biographical film Temple Grandin, will speak at the Museum of the Rockies on Tuesday, March 5.

Appearing in a variety of venues that are free and open to the public, Grandin will participate in an open forum from 10 am – 12 pm in the Procrastinator Theatre in the Stand Union Building. A public reception will be held from 5 – 6 pm at the Museum of the Rockies.

From 6 – 9:30 pm at the Museum of the Rockies, Temple will give two talks – the first focusing on animal science and the second on autism. Both talks are free, but they require tickets because of high interest and limited seating.

The animal science talk will run from 6 – 7:30 pm. It is sponsored by MSU’s College of Agriculture and the Department of Animal and Range Sciences. For tickets, contact Susan Copper at (406) 994-3722 or scooper@montana.edu.

The autism talk will run from 8 – 9:30 pm. It will be presented as a Cafe Scientifique event sponsored by Montana INBRE and COBRE. For tickets, call Laurie Howell at (406) 994-7531 or lhowell@montana.edu.

In 2010, Time Magazine named Temple Grandin one of the 100 most influential people and her life story was made into an HBO movie titled Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes, which won seven Emmy awards and a Golden Globe. For more information on Grandin, visit her website.
