Following several successful UK tours, bestselling, much-loved author and LGBT activist, Armistead Maupin, is heading back out on the road to celebrate the long-awaited tenth novel in the Tales of the City series- Mona of the Manor.

Maupin has been blazing a trail through US popular culture since the 1970’s, when his iconic and ground-breaking series Tales of the City was first published as a column in the San Francisco Chronicle. The novel series has been taking the literary world by storm ever since and was recently adapted by Netflix into a critically acclaimed series, starring Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Elliot Page.

Don’t miss the chance to join America’s ultimate storyteller in conversation with a special guest host, as he recounts his favourite tales from the past four decades, offering his own engaging observations on society and the world we inhabit.

‘From the beginning, I resolved to create a tapestry large enough to encompass all of humanity.’ Armistead Maupin
