CA – An Evening with Roz Chast


Cartoonist Roz Chast speaks on Friday, January 29, 2016 at 7:00 PM and Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 2:00 PM at the Newport Beach Public Library Foundation.

A humorous and poignant book that chronicles her relationship with her aging parents as they shift from independence to dependence, Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant? is the latest book for adults by Roz Chast. 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.

Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant is a New York Times 2014 Top Ten Best Book of the Year, 2014 National Book Award Finalist, the winner of the 2014 Kirkus Prize, and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle awards for the best books of 2014.
