Event Details

This event has been moved to the Brattleboro Music Center to accommodate a larger audience.

Roz Chast, longtime staff cartoonist for The New Yorker, discusses her life, career, and acclaimed graphic memoir Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?

A 2014 National Book Award Finalist for Non-Fiction, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? is also the winner of the prestigious National Book Critics’ Circle Award for Autobiography and the Kirkus Prize for Non-Fiction. The book, and Chast’s artistic contributions, were recognized in 2015 with a Heinz Award for Arts and Humanities. Of the effort, Chast notes that, “I didn’t want to forget how they talked and I didn’t want to forget how they were….Some of the stories that emerged were hilarious, but also heartbreaking, and they became a record of my experience with them. To know that others felt the book meant something to them—I’m very happy about that.”
