Led by Professor of English Aimee Pozorski, a literary discussion of the New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist, The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai. The Great Believers chronicles a mother's search for her estranged daughter against the backdrop of the AIDS crisis, and contemplates the ripples of grief affecting generations of survivors.Michael Cunningham has called The Great Believers an 'unblinking witness to history," and believes that even as the novel looks back to the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, it also encourages us to look forward. This presentation follows Cunningham's lead in reading The Great Believers as depicting the history of the AIDS crisis even as it calls for future progress in treating HIV/AIDS.
