An Evening with Armistead Maupin

Get set for a fascinating one-on-one interview with one of America’s most beloved and charismatic authors as he reflects on society, life and his work, including the latest addition to his Tales of the City series, Mary Ann in Autumn.

Now in its third decade, the Tales of the City series remains sassy, sweet and surprising as cherished characters explore life and love in San Francisco. As always, Maupin writes with the insight, compassion and mordant wit that have captivated readers for years and continue to bring new fans to the fold.

Perhaps the most sublime piece of popular literature America has ever produced … As with the Beatles, everyone seems to like Maupin’s Tales – and, really, why would you want to find someone who didn’t? SALON
