Sorry I’m late getting this out. Here’s the info on this month’s book group meetings. I just finished reading “Tales of the City” and I enjoyed it thoroughly! Remember, you don’t have to read the book to join us for our next meeting!
Lambda Book Group
The Lambda Book Group will next meet on Wednesday, June 20 at 7PM. The group will feature Armistead Maupin’s classic Tales of the City.
Originally published in daily installments in the San Francisco Chronicle and generally considered Armistead Maupin’s “love letter to the city of San Francisco,” Tales of the City remains the most-loved gay novel of all-time. The six installments in this series track the lives of Mary Ann, Michael, Mrs. Madrigal, and the rest in their apartment house in San Francisco. Charming, hilarious, and heartbreaking–Maupin highlights friends who have formed a family and the warm interconnection of their lives. This groundbreaking saga which hurdled social boundaries became a wildly popular mini-series on PBS and Showtime further confirming Maupin’s unique niche in American literature.
The discussion of Maupin’s Tales of the City will coincide with the much anticipated release of Michael Tolliver Lives. The new book will be featured at the July meeting of the Lambda Book Group.
Future selections for the Lambda Book Group are as follows:
June Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin
July Michael Tolliver Lives by Armistead Maupin
August Mister Sandman by Barbara Gowdy
