Anne-christine d'Adesky Author of The Pox Lover

When: Sat., June 17, 4-6 p.m. 2017

Laurel Book Store welcomes Anne-christine d'Adesky to share about her new book The Pox Lover: An Activist's Decade in New York and Paris. The Pox Lover is a personal history of the turbulent 1990s in New York City and Paris by a pioneering American AIDS journalist, lesbian activist, and daughter of French-Haitian elites. In an account that is by turns searing, hectic, and funny, Anne-christine d'Adesky remembers "the poxed generation" of AIDS—their lives, their battles, and their determination to find love and make art in the heartbreaking years before lifesaving protease drugs arrived.
