4-5 p.m.
Reading Time: < 1 minute

Join us Tuesday, November 16th from 4-5 p.m. to hear speaker Dr. Tony Silvia, Professor Emeritus in the department of Journalism & Digital Communications at the USF St. Petersburg campus, discuss his book Dyslexia and the Journalist: Battling a Silent Disability.

Event will be hosted at the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library on the Library Deck and will also be streaming on Microsoft Teams at bit.ly/307PCyO. Books will be available for sale with a book signing after the talk.

About the Book: Many with dyslexia and related learning and attention deficit disorders also struggle with low self-esteem and emotional health, leading to the assumption that they cannot succeed, especially in professions dominated by reading and writing. This book profiles famous broadcast journalists who overcame the long-overlooked, often misdiagnosed, learning disability to succeed at the highest level, among them CNN’s Anderson Cooper and NBC’s Richard Engel.
