6:30 PM, On the Same Page Book Club, 'The Great Believers' by Rebecca Makkai (Zoom)

Wednesday, September 7, 2022

The Great Believers is a novel that speaks of life during that earlier epidemic bloom in the 1980's - not as all-encompassing as today's airborne disease, but absolutely devastating to the families and communities affected by it. The HIV story and its effects on history continue, and are present in the interwoven 'today and yesterday' storylines of Makkai's tale. This novel won the ALA Carnegie Medal, the Stonewall Book Award, and the LA Times Book Prize. It was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.
