CUNY Journalism Press is throwing a party 6-8 p.m. on Monday Nov. 30 for the launch of our new book ‘Dying Words: The AIDS Reporting of Jeff Schmalz and How It Transformed The New York Times.’ The party will be held at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, 219 West 40th Street, in Midtown Manhattan. Come meet the authors, Samuel G. Freedman and Kerry Donahue, along with journalists and activists from the LGBTQ community.
The book tells the story of Jeff Schmalz, the young Times reporter and editor in the 1980s who was outed by AIDS, and then went on to courageously report on AIDS and gay culture. His work helped changed the attitude toward gay people at the Times and in other newsrooms across America. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
