CNN's Young Person Who Rocks recently featured a story about Blake Taylor, an eighteen-year-old college student who has written a memoir called ADHD & Me. The site also has a short video in which Blake answers questions from viewers.

I'm thinking he might make a great potential interviewee for "The Monarch Hour."

John Robison promotion

Thank you all so very much for all you’ve done and continue to do to promote the John Robison event. All of us at Monarch are grateful for your help. Our Heralds and our Speaker Planning Team have done a bang up job of getting the word out.

It’s not too late to:

  • Register and attend.
  • Encourage friends and family to register. (Everyone knows someone who is impacted by autism, who would be interested. Whom can you call to recruit?)
  • Pay to sponsor someone else to attend.
  • Re-Forward the flyer to your personal address book.
  • Add the announcement below to your email footer.
  • Help with delivery of flyers.

If you haven’t talked to Stephanie or Marion or Justin yet about what you can do to help promote, please contact one of them immediately! There is still much to do, and the week before is sometimes the best time to catch new attendees!

With love and appreciation,
