As a staff cartoonist for The New Yorker since 1979, Roz Chast has made a career of capsulizing in pen the everyday issues of our time: guilt, anxiety, aging, families, friends, money, real estate, and much more. Having contributed more than 1,000 cartoons to the magazine during her career, Chast was labeled “the magazine’s only certifiable genius” by The New Yorker editor David Remnick. Her work has been published in nine book collections, most recently Theories of Everything, a twenty-five year retrospective. She also illustrated The Alphabet from A to Y with Bonus Letter Z, written by Steve Martin, and has contributed to countless other publications.
In this illustrated presentation, Roz Chast will discuss where her ideas come from, the connection between anxiety and hilarity, The New Yorker, lockjaw, and much, much more.
This event is part of the Pen Pals Author Lecture series, a ticketed series benefiting the Friends of HCL. The 2012-2013 series features five diverse speakers in one scintillating series, including Salman Rushdie, Alice Kaplan, Roz Chast, Dennis Lehane and Armistead Maupin.
