In Conversation: On A Quilt for David & Between Certain Death and a Possible Future: Queer Writing on Growing Up with the AIDS Crisis
Wednesday, November 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
In poetry and prose, Steven Reigns’ A Quilt for David explores the story of David Acer, whose homosexuality and sickly appearance from AIDS-related illness made him the perfect scapegoat and a victim of mob mentality in his conservative, early 1990s-era Florida town. Between Certain Death and a Possible Future: Queer Writing on Growing Up with the AIDS Crisis is Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore’s wide-ranging collection of stories from a generation that came of age during the epidemic and had to confront the notion that desire led to death. Moderated by William Johnson, PEN Across America program director.
