Join the Teton County Library, Jackson Hole News & Guide and The Center for the inaugural Brainstorm speaker series. Brainstorm speaker series intends to ignite conversation and curiosity!

Temple Grandin will discuss three different types of thinking that are discussed in her new book, Visual Thinking.  The different types of thinking are object visualization, visual spatial mathematical minds, and verbal word thinking.  To solve problems, the three types of thinkers need to work together because they have complementary skills.
