Author, scientist, and animal welfare advocate Temple Grandin will speak at the IMA on Thursday, April 28, as part of the Planet Indy series–and we have a couple of tickets to the sold out show.
Because Temple will be describing visual ways of processing experiences, and how her own thinking as a person living with Autism led her to become the designer of more humane livestock handling facilities throughout North America, this event has great Food for Thought ties. The animals in her facilities are calm and comfortable; they die a swift, painless death. The result is meat that many experts believe to be healthier for the people who consume it. Temple’s best-selling books include Thinking in Pictures, Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human. The 2010 HBO film biography, Temple Grandin, recently won seven Emmy Awards.
