Temple Grandin on NPR's Fresh Air

Tune in to Fresh Air today on National Public Radio (3 pm, and hear David Bianculli (of TV Worth Watching) review the HBO movie depicting the life of animal behaviorist Dr. Temple Grandin, Ph.D., to premier on February 6.  Or download the audio file, which just because available on the web site.  In brief, Bianculli declares the movie is wonderful.  Sitting in for Terry Gross, Bianculli then introduces a segment that draws upon three earlier interviews between Gross and Grandin, corresponding to publication of some of Grandin's books.  Grandin is the focus of one of "seven paradoxical tales" in An Anthropologist on Mars, by Oliver Sacks. 

See books by Grandin in OBIS.  Several of Oberlin's copies of Grandin's and Sacks' books are currently checked out, but you can find other copies to borrow in the OhioLINK catalog
