With special guest Michael McCreary. Presented in partnership with Autism Job Club.

Temple has appeared on numerous TV shows such as 20/20, Larry King Live, and Prime Time. Her books include: Thinking in Pictures, Livestock Handling and Transport and The Autistic Brain. Her book Animals in Translation has been on the New York Times Bestseller List. She has also been instrumental in implementing animal welfare auditing programs that are used by McDonalds, Wendy’s, Whole Foods, and other corporations. Temple’s achievements are remarkable because she was an autistic child.

Twenty-one year old Michael McCreary was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of five. In an act of self preservation, combined with the desire for constant attention and the inability to stop talking, he began standup comedy.

The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, Oakville Public Library and A Different Drummer Books are pleased to present this series that feeds the inquisitive mind.

In Conversation With… is a speaker series providing you with an opportunity to hear, ask questions and meet some of Canada’s top influencers and authors.
