Armistead Maupin - 'Logical Family' (Signing Line Ticket event)

He may best known for his San Franciso-based Tales of the City novels, but Armistead Maupin grew up in Raleigh.  He returns on Friday, October 6, at 7 pm with his memoir, Logical Family.  Across nine novels and four decades, the beloved characters of Barbary Lane carved out their lives, creating and re-creating their 'family'.  In Logical Family, Armistead shares his journey from the conservative South, through service in Vietnam, and life in the heyday of '70s San Francisco, in search of the family he was meant to be part of. 

"A book for any of us, gay or straight, who have had to find our family. Maupin is one of America's finest storytellers, and the story of his life is a story as fascinating, as delightful and as compulsive as any of the tales he has made up for us."--Neil Gaiman
