Getting Graphic With Roz Chast

In her graphic memoir Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, cartoonist Roz Chast brings humor to the difficult topic of aging parents. Last year, the book earned her the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Kirkus Prize for nonfiction. Now, it's being featured alongside some of her other work as part of the Distinguished Illustrator Exhibition Series at the Norman Rockwell Museum. 

This hour, we sit down with Chast to talk about her art, and learn more about the exhibit, "Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs".
