In his insightful and inspirational memoir, The Sea is Quiet Tonight, Michael Ward returns to the early years of the AIDS epidemic when so little was known and so few who were diagnosed survived. He chronicles in candid detail his partner Mark’s decline and eventual death. By looking back on these devastating events, the author not only honors a generation lost to the illness but also opens a vital window into the past, before medication helped save lives and when HIV/AIDS was usually a death sentence. A book sale by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library follows the event.
