Rotarians to show dyslexia documentary

MARSHALL, Ill. — Rotarians to show dyslexia documentary

The Rotary Club of Marshall will provide a free showing of the documentary “Journey Into Dyslexia” at 6:30 p.m. CDT June 26, at the Marshall Public Library, 612 Archer Ave., Marshall, Ill.

The documentary profiles students and adults with dyslexia — difficulty with language skills, especially reading and spelling — who share their experiences of struggling in school and then succeeding in life.

Filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond use the video to examine the complexities of these differently structured brains and to debunk myths and misperceptions about dyslexia.

Among the dyslexic adults featured are consumer advocate Erin Brockovich; Ben Foss, inventor of the Intel Reader; Steve Walker, New England Pellet founder and CEO; and Dr. Carol Greider, 2009 Nobel Laureate in physiology and medicine.

The discussion leader for the event will be Clint Shaw of Charleston, Ill.  Shaw is a local builder, artist and retired professor from Eastern Illinois University who will answer questions following the movie.

This event was made possible through the joint efforts of area Rotarians and Rotary District 6490.

Register to attend by Friday at 217-826-2535 or
