The ISU Reading Project consists of a series of events geared toward encouraging interest, discussion and debate between readers.  This year the novel, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon, winner of the 2004 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book, was chosen by the committee. 

Temple Grandin was born with autism and has been an advocate for early intervention based on her own personal experience for many years.  As a strong believer in neurodiversity, Grandin embraces her autism and has become a role model for younger generations.
