SOLD OUT - Sunday Afternoon at The Chapel with ARMISTEAD MAUPIN in Conversation with ANDREW SEAN GREER

sold out

Books Inc. very proudly presents Sunday Afternoon at The Chapel with the legendary author of the bestselling Tales of the City series, Armistead Maupin, discussing the final book in the series, The Days of Anna Madrigal, in conversation with California Book Award Winner and author of The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells, Andrew Sean Greer.

Now ninety-two, and committed to the notion of "leaving like a lady," Mrs. Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her "logical family" in San Francisco: her devoted young caretaker Jake Greenleaf; her former tenant Brian Hawkins and his daughter Shawna; and Michael Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton, who have known and loved Anna for nearly four decades.

Some members of Anna's family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man, the art community in Nevada's Black Rock Desert where 60,000 revelers gather to construct a city designed to last only one week. Anna herself has another destination in mind: a lonely stretch of road outside of Winnemucca where the 16-year-old boy she once was ran away from the whorehouse he called home. With Brian and his beat-up RV, she journeys into the dusty troubled heart of her Depression childhood to unearth a lifetime of secrets and dreams and attend to unfinished business she has long avoided.
