Join us as Assistant Professor of Composition Jodie Mortag and award-winning author Rebecca Makkai discuss her celebrated novel "The Great Believers."

Shortlisted for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, 2018 National Book Awards and winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal, "The Great Believers" is a masterful story of love, friendship and redemption that intertwines the saga of the 1980s Chicago AIDS crisis with that of a mother trying to track down an estranged daughter in modern Paris.

Hailed by "The New York Times Book Review" as "an absorbing and emotionally riveting story about what it’s like to live during times of crisis," "The Great Believers" has become a critically acclaimed masterpiece. It was selected as a New York Times "Best 10 Books of the Year," among numerous honors, and has been optioned by Amy Poehler for a major television event.
