Roz Chast and Patricia Marx - Why Don't You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It?: A Mother's Suggestions — in conversation with Melissa Block

Upcoming Event
Friday, April 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Finding she couldn’t get her mother’s words of wisdom out of her mind, Marx, a long-time writer for The New Yorker, decided to put them in a book. Not just any book—one illustrated by her colleague, the legendary Roz Chast. No stranger to parental idiosyncrasies, Chast—author of the best-selling graphic memoir, Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?—has come up with just the right images for declarations such as, “If you run out of food at your dinner party, the world will end.” Given free rein of the “rules, guidelines, principles, precepts, decrees, no-nos, yes-yes’s, and arbitrary judgments of Patty’s mother,” Chast unleashes the full range of her witty, full-color art. Marx and Chast will be conversation with Melissa Block, special correspondent for NPR and former co-host of All Things Considered.
