Alicia Silverstone presents her new book

On October 10th, Comix welcomes critically acclaimed actress, environmental advocate, and author Alicia Silverstone to our stage for a live culinary demonstration as part of the Food Network New York City Wine and Food Festival presented by Food & Wine and Travel + Leisure magazines and hosted by and benefiting the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength. Ms. Silverstone will showcase recipes from her first book, The Kind Diet: How to Feel Great, Lose Weight, and Save the Planet (Rodale, October 2009). It features recipes and advice that speaks to the fact that, what’s good for the planet is also good for the body.

Silverstone has long been a vocal advocate for environmental causes and was recently awarded a “Heart of Green” award by the Hearst Corporation, which recognized her pioneering work in helping “green go mainstream.” Silverstone is continually asked to offer environmentally friendly fashion, dining, entertaining, and lifestyle tips to leading media outlets.

Alicia Silverstone is well known for her roles on stage and screen. Her numerous film credits include Batman & Robin, The Crush, Beauty Shop, Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, and the iconic blockbuster Clueless, among others. Her stage work includes performances in The Graduate on Broadway, and most recently, Donald Margulies’s Time Stands Still. Among her television portrayals are leading roles in three of Aerosmith’s best known videos and an Emmy-nominated performance in the hit animated children’s show Braceface, for which Silverstone provided the voice of the main character and served as executive producer.
