Join us for a screening of "Tres Bien: The Big Heart of Big Kitchen," a documentary about local restaurateur and activist Judy “The Beauty” Forman. Includes a meet and greet with Judy Forman, a former AIDS waiver social workers/case manager.

This event is inspired by the 2019 One Book, One San Diego selection, “The Great Believers” by Rebecca Makkai.

“The Great Believers” is a historical novel about the terrors and tragedies of the AIDS epidemic and its repercussions, through a story about friendship and redemption in the face of tragedy and loss, set in 1980s Chicago and contemporary Paris.

It won the Stonewall Book Award, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and was optioned by Amy Poehler for television.
