Cartoonist Roz Chast

Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016
Springfield Art Museum Auditorium
7:00 PM

Award-winning cartoonist Roz Chast has written more than a dozen books for adults including “Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?” that chronicles her relationship with her aging parents as they shift from independence to dependence. Using handwritten text, drawings, photographs, and her keen eye for the foibles that make us human, Chast addresses the realities of what it is to get old in America today – and what it is to have aging parents today -- with tenderness and candor, and a good dose of her characteristic wit. You’ve enjoyed her work in The New Yorker for years, now experience Roz’s humor and insight in person. A Q&A will follow her presentation. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. 
This event is free and open to the public and is most appropriate for adults.
