Dr. Temple Grandin to speak at Rocky Mountain Horse Expos

Denver, March 14 and Colorado Springs (Falcon-Latigo), July 4

With two New York Times bestsellers and several other notable titles to her credit, Dr. Temple Grandin is perhaps the most widely-recognized expert in animal behavior and humane livestock treatment in the nation—and perhaps the world. She is also well known as a spokesperson on behalf of autism research and treatment. The Rocky Mountain Horse Expo is honored that Dr. Grandin has agreed to appear at two Expos in 2009.

Her 2006 book, Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior (co-authored with Catherine Johnson) quickly became a runaway success. Her latest book, published this month and already on the NY Times Bestseller list, is Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals. It offers “facts and anecdotes about Temple Grandin’s favorite subject: the senses, brains, emotions, and amazing talents of animals (New York Times Book Review).” Nature magazine says, “At times, it is difficult to work out whether this is a book about animal behavior with insight from autism, or a book about autism that uses animal behavior to explain what it is like to be autistic. A major achievement of the book is that it is both.”

Dr. Grandin has designed livestock handling facilities around the world, awakened stock handlers to the psychology of grazing animals, written numerous articles on the humane treatment of livestock intended for slaughter, and broadened the public’s understanding of autism spectrum disorders. She offers a wealth of insights into animal and human behaviors.
