The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai | Taking Turns by MK Czerwiec | When We Rise by Cleve Jones

The NNLM Reading Club is pleased to recognize World AIDS Day, celebrated each December 1st. Since World AIDS Day was first observed more than 30 years ago, scientific research has led to progress in preventing and treating HIV. Even so, today millions of people live with HIV and a cure is yet to be discovered. HIV remains a health threat because people don’t know the facts about how to protect themselves and others. And those who are HIV positive live with the trauma of stigma and discrimination. Knowledge about HIV may lead to taking action to prevent its spread and also help reduce the stigma of this disease so those living with HIV receive needed support.

To help spark an important conversation about HIV/AIDS, visit the NNLM Reading Club Book Selections and Health Resources: HIV/AIDS Health. Choose one of the three featured books, then  download the discussion guide, promotional materials, and corresponding HIV/AIDS information. Short on time? We’ve got you covered! Apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book kit.
