The ISB Library welcomed Lyn Miller-Lachmann, a prolific author of books for children of all ages and a passionate advocate for autism awareness. She read Ways to Play — her very first picture book! — to Kindergarteners and She Persisted: Temple Grandin to 2nd Graders. Both the protagonist of Ways to Play and real life hero Temple Grandin are on the autism spectrum. Students delighted in the unique adventures of Riley and her beloved dog, and were thrilled by the story of a living legend whose affinity for animals and creative problem solving abilities helped her lead a remarkable life and to come up with some extraordinarily useful inventions. They were also really impressed by Lyn’s fabulous Lego city — complete with a boutique hotel, a skatepark, and even a custom Lego store! It was really inspiring for our students to learn about Lyn’s journey as a writer and to hear about her writing process as well as the collaborative processes of working with an illustrator and publishing her books. As you can imagine, after Lyn’s visit,Temple Grandin and Ways to Play don’t stay on the shelves long!
