Armistead Maupin -Logical Family | Author Talk

SEE EVENT DETAILS
In this long-awaited memoir, the beloved author of the bestselling Tales of the City series chronicles his evolution from curious youth to ground-breaking writer and gay rights pioneer. Realizing that the South was too small for him, he took to the road in search of adventure. It was a journey that would lead him from a homoerotic Navy initiation ceremony in the jungles of Vietnam to that strangest of strange lands: San Francisco in the early 1970s.

Reflecting on the profound impact those closest to him have had on his life, Maupin shares his candid search for his "logical family," the people he could call his own. From his loving relationship with his palm-reading Grannie to an awkward conversation about girls with President Richard Nixon in the Oval Office, Maupin tells of the extraordinary individuals and situations that shaped him into one of the most influential writers of the last century.
