Read Along with Art AIDS America---Two Boys Kissing



 Pierce County Library is partnering with the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM) and Oasis Youth Center to host a community reading program centered on the YA title Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan.

This title was chosen to support the exhibit Art AIDS America, to spark discussion about the impact of HIV/AIDS.

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan


Based on true events — and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS — “Two Boys Kissing” follows Harry and Craig, two 17-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity and belonging.---from the Pierce County Library website
