A headshot of Armistead Maupin

Armistead Maupin, legendary chronicler of San Francisco life, whose Tales of the City have been loved by millions, reads from his funny, poignant and unflinchingly honest memoir Logical Family.

An unmissable evening of words matched with music from the movies, the stage and the concert hall with one or two surprises.
