The Carleton College chapter of "Eye to Eye" has partnered with HBO to host a public screening of "The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia" at the Weitz Center for Creativity Cinema on Monday, February 4 at 7 p.m. Dyslexia is one of the most common learning differences (affecting one in five children) yet it is also one of the most misunderstood. Dyslexics are bright students who happen to struggle with reading. An official selection at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival,"The Big Picture" was directed by James Redford. The New York Times says the film "busts any preconceptions about limits on what people with dyslexia can achieve." This important film screening will be following by a discussion led by members of "Eye to Eye." The public is encouraged to attend this free event.
