Author Armistead Maupin returns to the Paramount Room at the Crown & Anchor in Provincetown. Maupin's iconic Tales of the City series has blazed a trail through popular culture – from a series of globally bestselling novels, to a Peabody Award-winning television miniseries starring Olympia Dukakis and Laura Linney, to a musical that premiered last year at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater. Maupin's most recent works include, Mary Ann in Autumn, and The Days of Anna Madrigal.
Armistead and his husband Christopher now call Santa Fe, New Mexico home, relocating recently after many years in San Francisco, CA.
Ticketholders to AN EVENING WITH ARMISTEAD MAUPIN can expect free-wheeling anecdotes and lively conversation with the audience – as well as a reading from Maupin's newest book, The Days of Anna Madrigal. The author's books will be available for purchase and signing after the event.
"Tales of the City (is) 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?"
– Laura Miller, Salon
"To quote the inestimable Quentin Crisp (upon introducing a friend), 'This is Mr. Maupin, he invented San Francisco.' Not just San Francisco either. For millions of fans around the world Armistead Maupin might as well have invented gay culture.
