Upcoming Events in April and May, 2014

Neurotypical: A POV Local Screening and Community Engagement Event
Wednesday, April 23 at 6:30 PM
Join us for a screening of Neurotypical by filmmaker Adam Larsen. Neurotypical is a rare film among  documentaries about autism. It relates the experiences of this neurological condition from the point of view of autistics themselves. Via the worlds of 4-year-old Violet, teenager Nicholas and middle-aged wife and  mother Paula, along with provocative interviews with other autistics, the film recounts the challenges they face living among "normal" people--whom many of them call "neurotypicals."
Join us for refreshments and discussion.            
This event is in collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS.(
