MEMORIES: My Brother, a Quilt, and the AIDS Project

MEMORIES: My Brother, a Quilt, and the AIDS Project

Join us for this moving conversation with Dinah Davis, a local resident who lost her brother to HIV/AIDS. She tells how the illness affected her family at a time when many members of the LGBTQ community remained closeted. The event, led by life coach Kris Franceschi, includes a short documentary on the San Francisco gay scene of the 1980s, narrated by Cleve Jones, who conceived the AIDS Memorial Quilt to which Dinah contributed. If your internet service is unstable or sometimes slow, we encourage you to view the five-minute video ahead of time on YouTube.

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.
