Since joining The New Yorker in 1978, Roz Chast has established herself as one of our greatest artistic chroniclers of the anxieties, superstitions, furies, and insecurities of modern life. Join us for a conversation with the author/artist of more than a dozen books, including the best-selling Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, which chronicles her relationship with her aging parents as they shifted from independence to dependence. She will be interviewed by Rabbi David Ingber.
