Famous Dyslexic ~ Max Brooks, Hollywood Screenwriter

I had never heard of Max Brooks until Sept. 18, 2014 when he spoke before Congress about what it is like to have Dyslexia.
Max is the New York Times bestselling author of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, an American horror author and screenwriter. Max is the son of comedian Mel Brooks & actress Anne Bancroft.

Zombies, horror and the like, are not my thing, so I may never have heard of Max Brooks had it not been for the one thing that allowed our paths to cross…Dyslexia. I was completely inspired and touched by his speech. I think you will, too, especially if Dyslexia is a part of your life directly or indirectly.

Max spoke on behalf of all dyslexic children, teens and adults.

To help change their future…

  2. Thank you for bring dyslexia to attention in such a positive way. I work with a child with various learning difficulties and try to look beyond them as much as possible and just see her and the potential she has 🙂
