Best-selling McHenry author to lecture at Harper
David Finch, a McHenry man who chronicled his ongoing journey with Asperger Syndrome in a 2012 best-selling memoir, will visit Harper College to share his story at 7 p.m. Monday, April 1, in the Building J Theatre, 1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine.
The free lecture, hosted by Harper's Office of Student Activities and the Access and Disability Services department, will mark Autism Awareness Month. Finch had been married for five years when he was diagnosed. The former engineer is now a full-time writer and speaker committed to self-improvement.
On Tuesday, April 2, Harper students will staff an autism awareness table from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the college will offer a free screening of the 2009 movie "Adam," which chronicles the friendship between a man with Asperger Syndrome and his neighbor, at noon in Room A242 of Building A. For more information, call Access and Disability Services at (847) 925-6266.
