Discuss OverDrive's Big Library Read—a hilarious yet insightful memoir titled, Funny You Don't Look Autistic: A Comedian's Guide to Life on the Spectrum by Michael McCreary via Zoom on April 24 at 11 am with librarians Jessica D'Avanza & Lisa Lesinski.
Like many others on the autism spectrum, 20-something stand-up comic Michael McCreary has been told by more than a few well-meaning folks that he doesn't "look" autistic. But, as he's quick to point out in this memoir, autism "looks" different for just about everyone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This book is available as an eBook or digital audiobook with no waitlists or holds through hoopla. Barrington Public Library cardholders can access the book by visiting hoopladigital.com or downloading the free hoopla app from your app store.
It’s Autism Awareness Month! Spread kindness and raise awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by participating in the plethora of world-wide Autism-friendly events throughout the month of April. ASD isn’t a learning disability but it affects a child’s ability to learn and socially interact with others from a very young age. Autism-friendly events and educational activities increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism and inspire a kinder, more inclusive world. Because of social distancing, participation in such activities present their own set of challenges this April. But you can still help advocate for people with ASD simply by wearing something blue as it symbolizes Autism awareness.
