David France (2018 Event)
How to Survive a Plague is David France’s history of the fight against AIDS, the disease caused by HIV that has killed over 35 million people worldwide. Described as ‘subtle and searing', it won the Baillie Gifford Prize in 2017. In 2018, the Book Festival and the Prize commissioned France to write a new chapter, responding to what he’s learned since his book was published. In this event recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival, he presents that follow-up. Chaired by Steven Gale.
