San Francisco Public Library is thrilled to celebrate Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City during our 10th Annual One City One Book.
Library bookshelves will be stocked with fresh copies of this beloved book that celebrates San Francisco in the 1970s this fall! Citywide programming will take place during September and October. Armistead Maupin will appear at the Main Library’s Koret Auditorium on Oct. 23 at 6:00 p.m., in conversation with K.M. Soehnlein.
For almost four decades, Tales of the City has blazed its own trail through popular culture—from a groundbreaking San Francisco Chronicle newspaper serial to a classic novel, to a television event that entranced millions around the world. The first of nine novels about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane in San Francisco, Tales is both a sparkling comedy of manners and an indelible portrait of an era that changed forever the way we live.
