Although some members of Generation X and those that follow may insist that, “books are so last century,” there is no denying that some books have a great impact on peoples’ lives and society in general.
One example is Armistead Maupin’s “Tales of the City” anthology. Described as a love letter to San Francisco, the “Tales of the City” anthology explores all corners of the City by the Bay and its’ LGBT community—featuring gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender characters before many in the LGBT community even knew what “trans” meant. The books explored social issues, from the AIDS crisis to aging in place in an era of gentrification, and although set in San Francisco, resonate with LGBT readers wherever they live.
This Tuesday night in West Hollywood, author Armistead Maupin will be participating in a special WeHo Reads event, presented by BookSoup at the City Council Chambers.
