    Name: Documentary Screening The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia
    Date: January 21, 2020
    Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM CST
    Event Description:
    MA for MGM in partnership with Read Write Montgomery presents a FREE community screening of the award-winning HBO Documentary "The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia." This event is open to the River Region community.
     
    About the film: A dyslexic high school student pursues admission to a leading college–a challenge for a boy who didn't learn to read until 4th grade. Additional accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts, and iconic leaders at the top of their fields, help us to understand that dyslexia, a persistent problem with learning to read, can be as great a gift as it sometimes is an obstacle.
     
    Super-achieving dyslexics revered in their fields–from Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab to politician Gavin Newsom and attorney David Boies–confirm what the children, experts and families suggest: dyslexia carries with it as many rewards as frustrations.
