Program Description

Event Details

Nate Trainor, born with Joubert syndrome, could not communicate with words until he was twenty-one years old and found himself stuck in a system that prematurely labeled him "profoundly retarded". Join us on June 25 at 10 am to hear Nate speak about his experience growing up with Joubert syndrome, his battles with the public school system to be included, his incredible efforts to prove his intelligence, and the breakthroughs that finally helped him find his voice.

Nate will be selling his book after the event for $17, and will accept cash, check, or credit card.

The 2022 Adult Summer Library Program is made possible with support from Friends of the Waterloo Public Library.
