Couldn't we use a few more pleasant things to talk about? Join us for a series of events featuring Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant by Roz Chast. This graphic memoir by The New Yorker's most famous cartoonist tells the story of Chast's parents' final years through cartoons, family photos, found documents, and narrative prose.
As Athens' National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read book selection, events in this series will help us dance, draw, and talk about all that is more or less pleasant! The events—which will touch upon aging, parenting, caretaking and the poetry of all of it—begin in April (poetry month) and run through May (Older Americans Month and Mothers' Day).
The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. This program is also supported by numerous Athens institutions and organizations including the UGA Mary Frances Early College of Education, Congregation Children of Israel, Athica Gallery, UGA’s Willson Center, Torrance Festival of Ideas, Athens-Clarke County Library, and Rutgers University.
Join us as we celebrate our fourth Big Read event in Athens!
