Set in 1980s Chicago and counterpointed with Paris thirty years later, Rebecca Makkai’s Carnegie Award-winning novel The Great Believers looks back at the early, panic-stricken decade of the AIDS epidemic and explores the shockwaves that continue to resonate across generations.  It revolves around a close-knit group of gay male friends and the sister of one who did not survive, trying to make sense of the impact on her own life. Rebecca Makkai will be in conversation with Bill Goldstein, editor of The New York Times books website, book critic for the weekend edition of WNBC’s “Today in New York” and author of The World Broke in Two.
