Join us for an unforgettable evening with Armistead Maupin, author of the Tales of the City series. Maupin will treat the audience to an early sneak preview of The Days of Anna Madrigal, the next novel in the Tales series—coming next year! He’ll discuss his work, his life, and his longtime LGBT activism.

Tickets are $25. 10% of the ticket proceeds will benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth. Event tickets will form the signing line after the presentation. Seating is general admission. Please arrive early.

In the New York Times Book Review, Mary Ann in Autumn, the most recent Tales novel, was described as “tenderhearted and frolicsome...A tale of long-lost friends and unrealized dreams, of fear and regret, of penance and redemption—and of the unshakable sense that this world we love, this life we live, this drama in which we all play a part, does indeed go by much too fast.”

Maupin was assigned to the San Francisco bureau of the Associated Press in 1971. In 1976 he launched his groundbreaking Tales of the City serial in the San Francisco Chronicle. He is the author of ten novels, including the eight-volume Tales series, Maybe the Moon, The Night Listener, and, most recently, Mary Ann in Autumn. Three miniseries starring Olympia Dukakis and Laura Linney were made from the first three Tales novels and The Night Listener became a feature film starring Robin Williams and Toni Collette. Maupin lives in San Francisco with his husband, Christopher Turner.
