Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, written by Roz Chast, a long time cartoonist for the New Yorker, is a “tour de force” (Elle), “remarkable” (San Francisco Chronicle), “revelatory” (Kirkus), “deeply poignant and laugh-out-loud funny” (New York Times), and “one of the great autobiographical memoirs of our time" (Buffalo News). “I want to recommend it to everyone I know who has elderly parents, or might have them someday" (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
Ellsworth Adult Education Humanities teacher and longtime admirer of Roz Chast, Emily Nash, will facilitate a discussion about this book. A limited number of books are available for distribution thanks to the NEA and the Ellsworth Public Library. When you register for this workshop we’ll share information about how you can secure a copy of the book. This is an in-person class.
