Cartoonist Roz Chast Brings It Home

Congratulations to "New Yorker" cartoonist Roz Chast, whose recent memoir has won “Best Autobiography” from the National Book Critics Circle. Members of our staff met up with Chast at her home in Connecticut last week, to prepare for our upcoming exhibition of the artist’s work, which will be on view at Norman Rockwell Museum from June 6 through October 26, 2015. We had a fun, behind-the-scenes tour, and also conducted a videotaped interview with Chast about her life and career. Make your reservations now to attend our gala exhibition opening on Saturday, June 6, and meet this talented cartoonist, whose work has kept us smiling for years.
