Join us for an evening with acclaimed author and New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast to celebrate the launch of her new graphic memoir, Going into Town: A Love Letter to New York(Bloomsbury, 2017). For the Brooklyn-born Chast, adjusting to life in the suburbs was a surreal process that took many years — and yet, she recognized that for her kids growing up outside the city, the reverse was true. Inspired by her children’s wonder for New York’s gum dotted sidewalks, honeycombed streets, and “those West Side Story-things” (i.e., fire escapes), Chast has created an inimitable guide and ode to New York City that speaks to both natives and newcomers alike.Buy tickets/get more info now
