Celebrate World Autism Awareness Day at The United Nations

April 2, 2012 is World Autism Awareness Day and the Golden Hat Foundation is celebrating at the United Nations

Back in February I had the honor of meeting Margret Ericsdottir at a lunch hosted by The Ladies Home Journal.

Her story is inspiring and if you're in the NYC area and can make it - DO IT!  Here are the details -

1:00 pm - Book Signing at the United Nations Bookstore.
Come through the public entrance near 46th & 1st with a photo ID. (No RSVP required)
Margret Ericsdottir and her son, Keli Thorsteinsson will be signing copies of their book The Golden Hat: Talking Back To Autism.  Books pre-autographed by Kate Winslet will be available for purchase on a first come, first served basis.

6:00 pm - Screening of A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism
RSVP required -please send an email to RSVP

Refreshments will be graciously provided by Actavis, the primary sponsor of the film. The screening will take place in the General Assembly Building in the Express Bar on the 3rd Floor. Please use the visitor's entrance on 46th street. 

I don't think I'll be able to make the book signing but I want to try and make the screening.
