Larry Bissonnette Speaks

Hi Estee,



Larry and I had some time between flights on our way home on Friday and we had a chance to look over the TAAP magazine and read your story about your visits to see Larry and Jonathan. We have been to many events together and I could tell he really enjoyed this one. He wrote some words to you:



“Kinship with people either classically autistic or mildly lit up by less obsessive peculiarities of autism is really wonderful. Looking at my artwork presented with such elegance let me proudly get goosebumps in my heart. Most liked doing speech on loud microphone. Maybe will FC speech and read it out loud in the future. Thank you again.”

Let there be more autistic voices that rise, more forums in which they can be heard, no matter what the medium. You can view Larry's work at The Lonsdale Gallery at 410 Spadina Road, Wednesdays-Sundays 12-5 p.m. It is part of the Joy of Autism: Redefining Abiltiy and Quality of Life EVENT
