Russell Lehmann is an award-winning and internationally recognized motivational speaker, poet, author and advocate whose words have reached over 20-million people worldwide. He is also a man living with autism. He will be in St. Louis on March 14 for one night only for a public presentation at Maryville University Auditorium. Doors open at 7 p.m. and his presentation begins at 7:30 p.m.
In 2011 Russell wrote a book titled, “Inside Out: Stories and Poems from an Autistic Mind” and in 2018, Russell was named Reno-Tahoe’s “Most Outstanding Professional Under 40.” You can learn more about Russell on his website by clicking here.
Russell has a raging fire within him to stand up for those who are not yet strong enough to do so themselves. His goals in life are to erase the stigma and stereotypes that come with having a disability, and to make this world a better place by spreading hope, compassion, awareness, acceptance, belief and tolerance.
A dessert reception featuring Destination Desserts and a book signing with photo opportunity alongside Russell will follow his presentation at 8:30 p.m.
