"MY MIND HAS BEEN STRETCHED SO THAT IT WILL NEVER RETURN TO ITS PREVIOUS SIZE"
AN EVENING WITH JONATHAN MOONEY
Jonathan Mooney is quickly emerging as one of the foremost leaders in alternative education. Thousands have heard his message as he has lectured around the world.
In What the Silenced Say, Jonathan speaks honestly in a voice that comes straight from the educational trenches about his experience as a dyslexic and hyperactive student who did not learn to read until he was twelve. Jonathan outlines how he moved past feeling “stupid and crazy” to ultimately graduate with a 4.0 in English literature from Brown University.
What the Silenced Say is a call for educational revolution for all of us concerned with cognitive diversity. Includes a lecture, a Q&A session with the audience and an in-depth interview with Jonathan, exploring his early struggles and ultimate success while spreading his message of hope and empowerment.
