A Story of Love and Loss in the Early Days of the AIDS Epidemic


It was 1981 when Michael Ward and Mark Halberstadt fell in love. Three years later Mark was diagnosed with AIDS and he and Michael became the first clients of Boston’s AIDS action Committee.  Michael Ward’s new memoir The Sea is Quiet Tonight is a love story set against a backdrop of fear, uncertainty, heartbreak, and ultimately hope. Michael Ward joins Mindy Todd on The Point for this interview.
