Edward Hirsch says of See it Feelingly, "This deft and impassioned hybrid—part memoir, part disability study, part portraiture, part literary criticism—is a book of revelations about reading, neurodiversity, and American literature." This event is held in tandem with a screening of Deej,a Peabody-award winning documentary about autism and inclusion, directed by Robert Rooy, produced by Robert Rooy and DJ “Deej” Savarese. That event is at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 29, in 002 Sabin.
