An Evening with Armistead Maupin
Following a successful UK tour in 2019, bestselling, much-loved author and LGBT activist, Armistead Maupin, is heading back out on the road.
Maupin has been blazing a trail through US popular culture since the 1970’s, when his iconic and ground-breaking series Tales of the City was first published as a column in the San Francisco Chronicle. The novel series has been taking the literary world by storm ever since, and was recently adapted by Netflix into a critically acclaimed series, starring Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Elliot Page.
‘From the beginning, I resolved to create a tapestry large enough to encompass all of humanity.’ – Armistead Maupin
Don’t miss the chance to join America’s ultimate storyteller, as he recounts his favourite tales from the past 4 decades, offering his own engaging observations on society and the world we inhabit.
The events will be followed by a book signing.
Armistead will be joined by Russell Tovey at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Graham Norton at Brighton Dome, Jack Guinness at HOME, and Simon Savidge at St George's. Special guests for Belfast and Dublin are to be announced.
