Armistead Maupin

Much-loved author Armistead Maupin brings his new tales to the city of literature. In 1976, he launched his daily newspaper serial, Tales of the City, in the San Francisco Chronicle. The first fiction to appear in an American daily for decades, Tales grew into an international sensation. Maupin’s six volumes are now multi-million bestsellers published in eleven languages. His latest novel is Mary Ann in Autumn, a new Tales of the City story.

Big Gay Week

At the Wheeler Centre we like to combine the celebratory with the cerebral. Between Midsumma and Mardi Gras, join us for the politics and the writing, the romance and the taboos, the agonies and the ecstasies of being queer.
