Roz Chast appears at 8pm on November 19, 2011 at UC Berkeley.
New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast is a brilliant interpreter of the everyday—”the magazine’s only certifiable genius,” according to editor David Remnick. More than 1,000 of her hilariously skewed cartoons have appeared since 1978, featuring a recurring cast of generally hapless but relatively cheerful “everyfolk.” In her work, Chast addresses such prickly issues as guilt, anxiety, aging, families, money, and as she would say, “much, much more!” Her Cal Performances talk features an illustrated tour of the evolution of her drawing style, audience Q&A, and a book signing to follow.
Roz Chast, whose cartoons have been a hilarious fixture of the New Yorker for 30 years, talks about her new book of humor, What I Hate: From A to Z on Thursday October 27, 2011 at 7:00 PM.

New Yorker cartoonists Roz Chast and Bruce Kaplan sign their new picture books at Books of Wonder on Tuesday August 31st, 2010!
ROZ CHAST presents Too Busy Marco, a story about a young bird who doesn’t want to go to sleep because he has just too much that he wants to do, and BRUCE KAPLAN presents Monsters Eat Whiny Children, a cautionary tale that finds a group of complaining children in the kitchen of some very hungry monsters who can’t decide what they want to eat – a whiny child salad? a whiny child cake? whiny child burgers?
Starting at 5pm, these author/artists will introduce their new tales, take questions from the audience, and sign copies of all their books. Ages 3-7. 5-7pm.
