The Bud Werner Library and Steamboat Reading are hosting a free screening of “Embracing Dyslexia,” on Wednesday, Oct. 12, in Library Hall, followed by a question-and-answer session with a panel of experts that is designed for adults and older kids with dyslexia. 

“Embracing Dyslexia” examines dyslexia, a learning difference that is estimated to affect between 10-20% of the world’s population, through an insider’s perspective. The documentary weaves together interviews with parents, adult dyslexics, researchers, educators and experts. 

October is dyslexia awareness month, and Steamboat Reading is a community of support for struggling readers and their families through one-on-one tutoring, formal evaluations and parent education. 

Through this month, the library will be featuring a special children’s display, book club and workshop on beginning-level reading in honor of Dyslexia Awareness Month.
