Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?

The December selection of the Chevy Chase Library's Book Club is Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast. We will meet on Tuesday, December 1 at 7 p.m. Since the branch will be closed for the month of December, we will be meeting at the Subway restaurant across the street.  (5616 Connecticut Ave NW.)

In this memoir (a finalist for the 2014 National Book Award) New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast recounts her experiences dealing with her aging parents during the last few years of their lives.  It’s a sad and funny reading experience and it should make for a great discussion. 

Copies of the book can be ordered through the online catalog, and can be picked up at the branch closest to you.  Digital copies are available through the catalog as well.
