On Feb. 6 at 8 p.m., HBO will premiere an original film based on the inspirational, true story of Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes. Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism.  

Grandin became a successful doctor in animal science through her unique connection to animals and is now a world-renowned consultant in the field. She is widely recognized within the animal welfare and livestock-handling industries as a pioneer in the ethical treatment of animals.  Grandin is the   best-selling author of “Thinking in Pictures,” “Animals in Translation” and “Humane Livestock Handling.”   

HBO and Barnes & Noble will host a special book signing and discussion with Temple Grandin on Monday, Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. at Barnes & Noble at 150 East 86th St (at Lexington Ave) in New York. HBO and Barnes & Noble invite the public to this free event.  

Information related to autism and the HBO film  will be displayed in all 775 Barnes & Noble stores,   including a free, downloadable coloring book that tells Temple’s story through illustrations created by artists with autism.

First I began by reading the comments made by Temple Grandin that the agriculture industry fails to communicate the progresses made in animal processing industry. Then I proceeded forward to view the trailer of the HBO film from 2010 only to see the comment "This video is private." Well that's just great. What a contradiction I saw the film when it first appeared in 2010 and it made a profound impression that I have never forgotten. But what about those people who never saw the film. They should not be prevented from that experience as they struggle to understand and contribute to the discussion groups on this site.
