This is for IN-PERSON TICKETS to the evening with Roz Chast. If you would like to join us virtually for this event, please visit us here.

Since joining The New Yorker in 1978, Roz Chast has established herself as one of our greatest artistic chroniclers of the anxieties, superstitions, furies, insecurities, and surreal imaginings of modern life. She is the author of more than a dozen books including Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?, Around the Clock, Too Busy Marco, and its sequel Marco Goes to School, and she collaborated with humorist Steve Martin on The Alphabet from A to Y with Bonus Letter Z!. In her new book, I Must Be Dreaming, Chast illustrates her own dream world, a place that is sometimes creepy but always hilarious, accompanied by an illustrated tour through “Dream-Theory Land” guided by insights from poets, philosophers, and psychoanalysts alike.

We are so pleased to be hosting our annual backstage party for members (at the Sponsor level and above) with Roz Chast following her onstage program. Not a member yet? Join here for an invitation.
