Event description

Description

Join us for Books That Shaped America—conversations for the American University and metro-D.C. communities about books that have helped shape American society, based on the list developed by the Library of Congress.

Tristan Cabello, Director, American Studies, will lead a discussion about And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts, the story of how the AIDS epidemic spread and how the government’s initial indifference to the disease allowed its spread and gave urgency to devoting government resources to fighting the virus.

Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to have read the featured text. Admission is free for this series and no RSVP is required to attend.
