Austin Bat Cave presents: Are You There Godzilla? It's Me, Mothra

For details, please visit

From the event's Facebook page:

Join us to celebrate the annual publication of our kid-written anthology, ARE YOU THERE GODZILLA? IT'S ME, MOTHRA, which celebrates the art of notes and correspondence. Students will read their work, bands will play, and piñatas will be violently beaten. We've heard rumors of an ice cream truck, tamales, typewriter poems, and a stuffed animal petting zoo, tool. An auction will feature opportunities for unique correspondence with the likes of Lena & Grace Dunham, George Saunders, Karen Russell, Rick Moody, & others: Bring your whole family, celebrate your mamas (it's Mother's Day weekend!), have a Shiner, and a whole lot of fun. This event is free and open to the public, and all donations and auction proceeds will go to support free writing programs for kids in Austin!
