'Ice' and Slice

Carnival o' Pizza and Rick Moody on the horizon

'Ice' and Slice

The Austin Bat Cave is launching its new film series, called Page 2 Screen, with author Rick Moody discussing Ang Lee’s adaptation of his 1994 novel The Ice Storm with Evan Smith.

The screening and talk takes place Dec. 6 at 6pm at the Blanton auditorium, with a booksigning, cocktails, and apps preceding the screening and a Q&A after. Tickets are $50. For future Page 2 Screen events, programmers are talking with Walter Kirn (Up in the Air) and Susan Orlean (The Orchard Thief / Adaptation).

If you’re looking for a slightly less pricy way to show some love for ABC, a local writing and tutoring center molded on 826 National model, proceeds from Home Slice’s annual Carnival o' Pizza tomorrow will benefit the Bat Cave. There’ll be games, bands, graffiti artists, readings from ABC kids, and a raffle with some nifty prizes, including a trip for two to San Francisco to have lunch with Dave Eggers, a story critique by George Saunders, and “the right to be the only person on Earth who can make a reservation at Home Slice.”
