An evening with Armistead Maupin at The Lowry, Salford, 8 October 2019, free entry - Visit now

Bestselling, much-loved author and LGBT activist Armistead Maupin is back in Manchester a couple of years on since his last visit, when he launched his autobiography Logical Family: A Memoir. This time he’s on first-ever UK tour, organised by Fane Productions and Kilimanjaro, and this “An Evening With…” event sees him interviewed by author, journalist and broadcaster Hannah Beckerman.

Maupin has been blazing a trail through US popular culture since the Seventies, when his iconic and groundbreaking Tales Of The City series of books was first published as a newspaper column in the San Francisco Chronicle. The novel series has been taking the literary world by storm ever since, with books added more recently including Michael Tolliver Lives and Mary Ann In Autumn, and the Netflix adaptation – starring Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Ellen Page – garnering new audiences.

Don’t miss the chance to join America’s ultimate storyteller, as he recounts his favourites tales from the past four decades, offering his own engaging observations on society and the world we inhabit.

Ticket prices range from £18.50 to £33.50.
