More Than Words Presents: The Great Believers Book Talk

Join author Rebecca Makkai for a reading and signing of her book, The Great Believers.

“At turns heartbreaking and hopeful, the novel brings the first years of the AIDS epidemic into very immediate view, in a manner that will seem nostalgic to some and revelatory to others…Makkai’s sweeping fourth novel shows the compassion of chosen families and the tension and distance that can exist in our birth ones.”—Library Journal
