HIV/AIDS in the 80s: Firsthand Accounts of the Santa Cruz Scene

HIV/AIDS in the 80s: Firsthand Accounts of the Santa Cruz Scene

Sponsored by the Friends of the Capitola Library, California State Senator John Laird leads a panel discussion with people who were living in Santa Cruz as the epidemic was exploding. No effective treatments were yet available, and misinformation was rampant.

This event is part of Our Community Reads 2021, which is an annual event of the Friends of the Aptos Branch Library, in partnership with Friends Chapters from Capitola, La Selva Beach, and for the first time, Felton, bringing people together to read a book, chosen by community members, and offers a series of related events to the public.
The events aim to create a shared experience that will increase appreciation for our community libraries and for our local bookstores; foster pride in the varied experiences that our area offers; and the enrichment –– culturally, intellectually, and emotionally –– that comes from the joy of reading! All events are hosted online by the Santa Cruz Public Libraries and are free and open to the public.
