Autism Speaks to Celebrate World Autism Awareness Day with Day-Long Series of International Events on April 2
Date:3/11/2008

Barnes & Noble bookstores in ten major U.S. markets will host Storytime events to mark World Autism Awareness Day. Celebrities and others will read from books that encourage compassion and respect for individuals with autism and other disabilities. Some 500 Barnes & Noble stores will also host autism Storytime events during Autism Awareness Month.

The day will conclude with a special performance of Feld Entertainment's Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus at Madison Square Garden in New York City tailored to children with autism and their families. The arena will feature quiet rooms where children can take a break but still enjoy the show. In addition, the children will be able to interact with the large animals prior to the performance in a supervised environment. The event signifies the launch of a yearlong partnership between the "Greatest Show On Earth" and Autism Speaks.

The Sundance Channel will host the television premiere of the acclaimed documentary Autism Every Day on April 2. The film, which debuted at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, documents a typical 24-hour day in the lives of eight families struggling to raise children with autism. Autism Every Day shows how developmental skills that most parents take for granted -- a child's ability to brush his teeth or communicate a need -- can prove enormous hurdles for a child with autism. At the same time, the film captures the unconditional, powerful love these parents have for their children.

Autism Speaks UK will hold an "Authors for Autism Research" character auction on eBay beginning March 23 and ending on April 2. Bidders will be vying to have their name given to a character in a future work by a leading UK author. Among the authors participating are RJ Ellory, Ken Follet, Marti Leimbach and Esther Freud.
