Chronicling a Crisis: Writers on the History of HIV/AIDS

From the earliest reported cases in the 1980s, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has spurred New Yorkers to innovate new forms of social services, expand conceptions of family, fight social stigma, and push for greater political and medical intervention. Inspired by our exhibition, AIDS at Home: Art and Everyday Activism, Anne-christine D’Adesky, David France, and Tim Murphy—three authors whose works offer a searingly honest glimpse into the ongoing history of the virus and its impact—will be joined by journalist Mathew Rodriguez for a conversation about challenges of writing about HIV/AIDS across literary genres.

Reception and book signing to follow.
