What's New in Science Reference: How to Survive a Plague: October 23 Book Talk


David France, author of How to Survive a Plague and creator of the 2012 Academy Award-nominated film of the same title, discusses his telling of the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the U.S. The book is a powerful telling of the story of the grassroots movement of activists who seized upon scientific research to help develop the drugs that turned HIV from a mostly fatal infection to a manageable disease. This lecture will be held in the Pickford Theater on the third floor of the Library's James Madison Building, Monday, October 23, 2017, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., and is presented in association with Capital Pride and LC-GLOBE. A book signing will follow.
