For more than three decades, Armistead Maupin has entertained millions, straight and gay, with his stories of swinging San Francisco. His groundbreaking Tales of the City series began as a column in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1976 and eventually grew into eight international-bestselling novels, a television miniseries, a film and a musical. Armistead Maupin was one of the first openly gay authors, yet his appeal as a witty and talented storyteller of the human experience is universal. In addition to the Tales series, Armistead has penned several other bestselling novels, including The Night Listener, which was adapted into a feature film starring his friend of 30 years, Robin Williams.
In a free-spirited talk entitled “Untold Tales” novelist Armistead Maupin reveals the real-life inspirations for his legendary Tales of the City series.
