New York Times bestselling author and Wired reporter Steve Silberman will delve into the history of autism as detailed in his book, Neurotribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. Is autism a lifelong disability, or a naturally occurring form of cognitive difference akin to certain forms of genius? Silberman argues that it is both of these things and more—and that the future of our society depends on our understanding it. Oliver Sacks called Neurotribes a “sweeping and penetrating history…presented with a rare sympathy and sensitivity.” The book won the 2015 Samuel Johnson prize for non-fiction, a California Book Award, and a Books for a Better Life award.
