First Church Book Group

Emergence by Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin’s brief, first book tells the story of how she overcame
the challenges of autism. In Emergence, Grandin details her early
struggles at home and in school, as an intelligent and curious child
who was unable to express herself or behave according to the
expectations around her.  With perseverance and courage, Grandin has
gone on to great professional success in the animal welfare movement
and as an autism advocate. She has also written a number of critically
acclaimed books and become the subject of an award-winning semi-
autobiographical movie (starring Claire Danes).  You will find that
Emergence is a quick read; please come join us and talk about this
fascinating woman.
The Book Group is always open to new members. Please contact Anne
Stuart at: to confirm attendance if you are
