Event description

Description

Author Michael Ward reads and discusses his book The Sea Is Quiet Tonight, a memoir of the early years of the AIDS epidemic in Boston and New York. By chronicling in candid detail his partner Mark's decline and eventual death, Ward honors a generation lost to the illness and opens a vital window onto the past, including Louise Hay’s first support groups and the founding of Boston’s AIDS Action Committee by Larry Kessler.

Doors open and reception at 6:00PM, talk begins at 6:30, followed by a Q&A.

All events in the Out of the Archives series are held at The History Project, 29 Stanhope Street in Boston, unless otherwise noted. This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required and available through the REGISTER link on this page.
