A sell out crowd for Q & A with Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin and John Bercow MP

On Thursday 21 June, Ambitious about Autism hosted the UK premiere of the HBO film Temple Grandin. Temple herself attended the screening and took part in a Q & A, chaired by John Bercow MP, Speaker of the House of Commons.

The screening, which took place at the May Fair Hotel in London, had sold out weeks in advance and Temple answered questions from the audience for over an hour before staying to sign books.
