Armistead Maupin reads at the Central Library
The Seattle Public Library and PrideFest welcome best-selling author Armistead Maupin for a special Pride Week reading from his latest novel, Mary Ann in Autumn, and a conversation on the very gay world of Tales of the City.  

Armistead Maupin was born in Washington, D.C., in 1944 but grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he served as a naval officer in the Mediterranean and with the River Patrol Force in Vietnam.

Maupin worked as a reporter for a newspaper in Charleston, South Carolina, before being assigned to the San Francisco bureau of the Associated Press in 1971. In 1976 he launched his groundbreaking Tales of the City serial in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Maupin is the author of nine novels, including the six-volume Tales of the City series, Maybe the Moon, The Night Listener and, most recently, Michael Tolliver Lives. Three miniseries starring Olympia Dukakis and Laura Linney were made from the first three Tales novels. The Night Listener became a feature film starring Robin Williams and Toni Collette.

Maupin lives in San Francisco with his husband, Christopher Turner.

This program is sponsored by The Seattle Public Library Foundation and Seattle PrideFest and is presented in partnership with The Elliott Bay Book Co. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

This program is free and open to the public. NOTE: FREE ADVANCE TICKETS ARE REQUIRED. Limit of two per person. Tickets available beginning June 1 at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800-838-3006. Seating is not guaranteed after 2:45 p.m.
