Inside Out Book Published: Russell Lehmann's first book on poetry called Inside Out was published in October, 2011. The title for his book seems to come from a quotation Russell Lehmann said, "One way I like to define myself living with autism is that I'm closed on the outside, and open on the inside. I may come across as not listening or paying attention, but trust me, I am." Dr. Temple Grandin, another Autism Light herself, has called his work "Beautiful".
Here is a video of a news story on Russell Lehmann's poetry talent.
