Catch up with John Robison and his new book, BE DIFFERENT

John Elder Robison‘s new book  Be Different will be available on March 22nd. In Be Different, Robison shares a new batch of endearing stories about his childhood, adolescence, and young adult years, giving the reader a rare window into the Aspergian mind.

John will be traveling the country to promote his book and could be making a special appearance in a town near you! Here is his tour schedule – we hope to see you there!

    Hoping he will come to St Louis or Columbia, Mo. Any chance of that?

    Aww I was really hoping you’d come to Los Angeles

  3. March 15, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Emily, I thought I’d go to LA too, but the CA dates I ended up with were Bakersfield (with Temple Grandin, last month) San Francisco, Mountainview, Santa Rosa, and San Diego. Brenda . . . I was in Columbia last year; perhaps they will invite me back soon.

    I am the president of an all womens motorcycle club. We do many fund raisers. On June 4th we do a fund raiser for Autism Speaks. We expect aprox 300 people there. We welcome you to join us and perhaps say a few words.
