Book Talk: Heroes: A Tribute pays homage to first victims of AIDS

June 24 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

A book talk and signing with Doug Meyer.

Heroes: A Tribute pays homage by way of portraiture to some of the first victims of AIDS and AIDS-related diseases — brilliant creative figures such as Freddie Mercury, Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring, Rudolph Nureyev, Rock Hudson, John Duka, Tina Chow, Klaus Nomi, Halston, and Angelo Donghia. In Heroes, artist Doug Meyer honors 50 innovative pioneers from the worlds of art, design, film, and dance whose contributions may be unknown to a younger generation. Proceeds from all book sales during the tour benefit local AIDS organizations.
