“The wacky world Roz Chast has created in her cartoons is a parallel universe to ours, utterly recognizable in all its banalities and weirdnesses, but slightly askew...”     –  The New York Times

Cartoonist Roz Chast is a brilliant interpreter of the everyday. Her cartoons depict neuroses, hilarity, angst and domesticity and are loaded with words, objects and patterns. More than 1,000 of them have been printed in The New Yorker since 1978. She is known for her cast of recurring characters – generally hapless but relatively cheerful “everyfolk.” The editor of The New Yorker David Remnick has called her “the magazine’s only certifiable genius.” Her newest book for adults is Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant? – a book that uses her characteristic wit to chronicle her relationship with her aging parents as they shift from independence to dependence.

Roz Chast will be signing her books that afternoon for our Older Americans Month Celebration from 3:30 – 5 p.m. as well as after the performance.
