On March 21, 2012 Temple Grandin came to Huntington Beach as part of HB Reads annual author event.  Temple is a doctor of animal science, a professor and a best-selling author.  She was listed in the 2010 Time Magazine list of the 100 most influential people in the world and was the subject of the award-winning HBO film Temple Grandin starring Claire Danes.  On their own these are great things- but what makes them monumental is that Temple Grandin has autism. 

Diane R. Adams Insurance Agency and Farmers Insurance were the major sponsor of this event, and Diane played an instrumental role with the event committee responsible for bringing Temple to Huntington Beach.
