Roz Chast: “Can’t We Talk
about Something More Pleasant?”
For almost forty
years author and artist Roz Chast has
chronicled the hilarities and indignities of modern, urban life in her
distinctive cartoons for the New Yorker and
other publications. In her most recent graphic memoir,
“Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?” she brings to life the
experience of aging in America, mostly through the (often bewildered) eyes of her aging parents, who lived into their
late 90s. Join us for a lively evening, complete with graphics, in which Chast
brings her signature wit and unflinching gaze to the topics we’d all rather
avoid. Following a visual presentation, Chast will appear in conversation with
producer Barbara Lane.
The VIP reception will take place at 12:30 pm in the Kreeger Lobby at American University.
Tickets will be available at the door, but we strongly recommend purchasing tickets in advance.
Member ticket: $30 (+$1.50 fee)
Non-member ticket: $35 (+$1.50 fee)
VIP ticket: $50 (+$1.50 fee, includes exclusive meet-and-greet pre-reception and VIP seating)
