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.
