As promised, here is the info for the Temple Grandin events. Wednesday's lecture, as it turns out, is free. The movie on Thursday does cost some money (I forgot how much but I think it's something like $6)
Temple Grandin -- a scientist, innovator, professor, renowned animal welfare activist, much-in-demand veteran of the speaking circuit and one of the most accomplished and well-known adults with autism -- presents her final lecture as Cornell's Frank H.T. Rhodes Class of '56 Professor, "Animal Behavior and Welfare," Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m., Call Auditorium, Kennedy Hall. On Feb. 25 at 7 p.m., Willard Straight Theatre, Grandin and producer Scott Ferguson '82 present a new biopic from HBO, starring Claire Danes, which chronicles Grandin's life through the '60s and '70s.
