Novelist and Short Story writer Rebecca Makkai will read from and discuss her most recent novel The Great Believers, The book is a finalist for the National Book Award. Reviewed in the NY Times Book Review, Michael Cunningham said: “Rebecca Makkai’s The Great Believers is a page turner… among the first novels to chronicle the AIDS epidemic from its initial outbreak to the present—among the first to convey the terrors and tragedies of the epidemic’s early years as well as its course and repercussions…An absorbing and emotionally riveting story about what it’s like to live during times of crisis.”
