Think you have to make the trek all the way up to San Francisco to see Armistead Maupin?  Think again!!  Peninsula Arts & Letters is honored to host Armistead Maupin at Kepler's Books on Wednesday, January 28 at 7:30pm.

It's a rare thing for a book to capture a time and place as beautifully as Armistead Maupin's original Tales of the City series did for 1970's San Francisco.  In the era of mood rings and discos, Maupin created a cast of characters he lovingly calls the Logical Family (as opposed to the biological family). Originally a newspaper serial in the "San Francisco Chronicle", Maupin's series started in 1976 and ends in 2013 with his final book, "The Days of Anna Madrigal". Whether you are a child of the '70s who wants to reconnect with a bygone era or a first-time reader who wants to experience how the ties of love and friendship transcend decades, you will not be disappointed by tales of Mary Ann Singleton, Michael Tolliver, Mrs. Madrigal, and the rest of the groovy crew that populates Maupin's San Francisco.  Gay, straight, bi, or anything else, you will feel like a member of the Logical Family by the end.

The timelessness and popularity of the series lives on in a stage-musical version in May 2011 and Armistead's continued recognition, including the Lamdba Literary Foundation's Pioneer Award that he received in 2012 and the Visionary Award at the Legacy Gala he received in November 2014 for the first adaptation of the novels.  Featuring Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Chloe Webb, Marcus D'Amico and Donald Moffat, the show garnered the highest ratings ever for a dramatic program on PBS.    

Come help us celebrate the ninth and final novel in Armistead's classic Tales of the City series, a triumphant resolution to a saga of urban family life that has enchanted and enlightened readers around the world since 1976.
