Jonathan Mooney is coming

Get it on your calendars now!  Jonathan Mooney, author of "The Short Bus: A Journey Beyond Normal", will be speaking on Sunday April 13 at 2:00 PM in Riley Auditorium in Battelle Fine Arts Center. 

During the "Short Bus" presentation, Jonathan brings to life some of the individuals with disabilities that he met during his trip across the United States.  He describes how schools, institutions, and public policy enforce normalcy and he empowers his audience to think differently.
