John Elder Robison’s works include Be Different (2011), a how-to guide for grownups with autism; Raising Cubby (2013), the story of raising his autistic son; and Switched On (2016), about his participation as a research subject in brain studies.

Robison is active in the autism civil rights movement and is a strong supporter of neurodiversity – the idea that autism and ADHD are a natural part of humanity, essential for our success, and should be honored and accepted even as we work to relieve any disability they may cause.   

Copies of his books will be for sale at the event. 

The Author Talk Series is made possible through the support of the Friends of the Library.
