Don't miss authors and friends Regan Hofmann and Courtney Sheinmel as they read from their inspiring books focused on people living with HIV, and discuss the liberating power of writing about it. The women will be featured at a reading and discussion on October 12, 2010 at the National Arts Club in New York City; the event will be open to the public beginning at 8:00 p.m.
Ms. Hofmann, a Foundation Ambassador and a journalist by trade, first shared her HIV-positive status publicly in 2006 when she became editor-in-chief of POZ Magazine
, putting herself on the cover. Her memoir I Have Something to Tell You
is a compelling chronicle of her journey, and was praised by Kenneth Cole as "insightful and inspiring."
Ms. Sheinmel, an author of books for young adults, was 13 when she read Elizabeth Glaser's story and began volunteering for the Foundation. Ms. Sheinmel's acclaimed novel Positively
follows a seventh grader living with HIV, and was inspired, in part, by her relationship with the Glaser family. She also is the author of My So-Called Family
, and the upcoming All the Things You Are
