NYC – Going into Town Launch Party

Press Release:

Join MCNY on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 6:30 PM for an evening with acclaimed author and New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast to celebrate the launch of her new graphic memoir, Going into Town: A Love Letter to New York (Bloomsbury, 2017). For the Brooklyn-born Chast, adjusting to life in the suburbs was a surreal process that took many years — and yet, she recognized that for her kids growing up outside the city, the reverse was true. Inspired by her children’s wonder for New York’s gum dotted sidewalks, honeycombed streets, and “those West Side Story-things” (i.e., fire escapes), Chast has created an inimitable guide and ode to New York City that speaks to both natives and newcomers alike.

Tickets available here, Includes Museum admission, book signing and reception to follow.

About the Speaker:
Roz Chast
 is an acclaimed cartoonist who has published hundreds of pieces in the The New Yorker for almost four decades.  Author of the award-winning, best-selling memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? (Bloomsbury, 2014), Chast was the subject of the Museum of the City of New York’s 2016 exhibition, Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs. She has written and illustrated many children’s books, including a collaboration with Steve Martin on the children’s book The Alphabet from A to Y with Bonus Letter Z!, contributed to numerous humor collections, and lectured widely.
