Join us for the next in our series of readings over dinner at Calliope.Iowa City native Sean Strub will read from and discuss his new book, Body Counts: A Memoir of Politics, Sex, AIDS, and Survival. As a 1976 Georgetown freshman with a job operating a Senate elevator in the Capitol, Strub began his exploration of the capital’s political and social circles—a parallel world where powerful men lived double lives. The AIDS epidemic of the 1980's found him in New York, where, scared and angry, he turned to radical activism to combat discrimination and demand research. Strub takes readers through his own diagnosis and inside ACT UP, the activist organization that transformed a stigmatized cause into one of the defining political movements of our time.Admission at $85 includes a 4 course meal and book. (Non-refundable. Tax, tip, and booze not included.) Ticketing questions can be directed to Calliope: (212) 260-8484.Sean Strub is an activist, writer, and executive director of the Sero Project, which combats the criminalization of people with HIV. He founded POZ magazine, produced the hit play "The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me," and was the first openly HIV-positive candidate for U.S. Congress.
