”Dying Words: The AIDS Reporting of Jeff Schmalz and How It Transformed The New York Times,” will be released on December 1, 2015, to coincide with World AIDS Day. The multi-media project will be in audio documentary form with a companion book about the groundbreaking journalist who covered the AIDS epidemic as he was dying of the disease.
A collaborative effort led by author, professor and journalist Samuel G. Freedman (who Nicholas Snow welcomes to this episode) and radio producer Kerry Donahue, the project will air on radio stations across the country beginning in November and the book will be released by CUNY Journalism Press on December 1, 2015.
The audio documentary, produced by Kerry Donahue and edited by Ben Shapiro, will be distributed by PRX to public radio stations around the country and also be available as a podcast. The companion book consists of about 35,000 words of text, including excerpts from Jeff’s work, and will be released as both an original paperback and ebook.
Incidentally, Nicholas Snow is championing a worldwide download of his own living-powerfully-with-HIV memoir, Life Positive: A Journey to the Center of My Heart, available free (from Dec. 1-5, 2015 only) to any device worldwide at www.LifePositiveBook.com (the Amazon page) using the Kindle App.
