Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale–The Normal Heart
A PART OF THE LAKE FOREST READS: RAGDALE TOWN-WIDE EVENT
Thanks to Emmy-worthy performances from a reputable cast, The Normal Heart is not only a powerful, heartbreaking drama, but also a vital document of events leading up to and through the early AIDS crisis.
This drama tells the story of the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.
Following the film will be a discussion.
