Armistead Maupin in person!
Screening followed by Q&A + Book Signing
“A rollicking crowd-pleaser of a film.” –San Francisco Chronicle
Join us and legendary writer Armistead Maupin for a one-night event at the CCA. Maupin is best known for his serial Tales of the City, which was adapted into one of the biggest hits in PBS history. His remarkable life—from a childhood in the conservative Deep South, to service in Vietnam, to a successful career as a journalist, and then a very public coming out as the writer of a sensational column in the San Francisco Chronicle—is the subject of a new documentary.
Mr. Maupin will introduce The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin, by Jennifer Kroot, and take questions from the audience afterwards. Following the screening, Maupin will sign books including his new memoir Logical Family, which grew out of his critically acclaimed one-man show of the same name.
“Maupin is one of America’s finest storytellers,” writes Neil Gaiman about the book, “and the story of his life is a story as fascinating, as delightful and as compulsive as any of the tales he has made up for us.”
The program is presented as part of the CCA’s ongoing Fabulous Thursdays series, celebrating LGBTQ+ culture.
Screening & Book Signing, March 29th, 6:30pm, $20
