Editors Note Published to raise awareness and funds for autism research, a treasury of vivid self-portraits collected by the Academy Award-winning actress features A-list celebrities and cultural luminaries donning a common "magical" hat representing a breakthrough for an autistic poet who doctors once believed could never communicate.
Annotation After actress Kate Winslet did the voiceover for a documentary film about severe autism, she felt moved to do more. Taking her inspiration from a poem written by an autistic boy, who longs for a magic hat that would help him communicate, she approached fellow celebrities and asked them to help her raise awareness of the condition by posing for photos wearing one of her old fedoras. Among those who agreed to don the hat are Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Conan O'Brien, Reese Witherspoon, and George Clooney. The photos in the book, sales of which will benefit Winslet's Golden Hat Foundation, are accompanied by brief comments from the stars.
