Living and Loving in the Age of AIDS (David Frost) – Book Presentation and Signing at the Malta Society of Arts

The common lived experience of the COVID-19 pandemic has, if nothing else, prompted people to consider the devastating ‘management’ of the AIDS pandemic back in the 80s. Living and Loving in the Age of AIDS is hardly a light read, but it’s certainly a moving one.

This month the author, David Frost, will be visiting the Malta Society of Arts for an intimate presentation and signing. Frost has penned a raw and tender account of love and loss detailing his personal experience with his long-term partner J in the midst of the AIDS outbreak. So, if you gravitate towards deeply human stories in times of hardship, this one’s for you.
