Pen Pals with Armistead Maupin

A ticketed series benefiting the Friends of HCL

Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins, MN

ONLINE TICKETS CLOSED. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR BEGINNING 1-HOUR PRIOR TO THE LECTURE. GREAT SEATS STILL AVAILABLE.

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.

This event is part of the Pen Pals Author Lecture series, a ticketed series benefiting the Friends of HCL. The 2012-2013 series features five diverse speakers in one scintillating series, including Salman Rushdie, Alice Kaplan, Roz Chast, Dennis Lehane and Armistead Maupin.

Individual tickets are $40 for balcony and $50 for main floor. Season subscriptions start at $160 for all 5 lectures and are on sale now. You can choose from Thursday night or Friday day. Call 612.543.8112 for more information.
