Queer Book Club - More Tales of the CityMore Tales of the City
by Armistead Maupin

“An extended love letter to a magical San Francisco.”—New York Times Book Review

The tenants of 28 Barbary Lane have fled their cozy nest for adventures far afield. Mary Ann Singleton finds love at sea with a forgetful stranger, Mona Ramsey discovers her doppelgänger in a desert whorehouse, and Michael Tolliver bumps into his favorite gynecologist in a Mexican bar. Meanwhile, their venerable landlady takes the biggest journey of all—without ever leaving home.

Armistead Maupin is the author of the nine-volume Tales of the City series. The first three books, Tales of the City, More Tales of the City, and Further Tales of the City, were made into three television miniseries starring Olympia Dukakis and Laura Linney. Maupin’s other books include Maybe the Moon and The Night Listener. Maupin was the 2012 recipient of the Lambda Literary Foundation’s Pioneer Award. He lives in Santa Fe with his husband, the photographer Christopher Turner.

The Queer Book Club was founded who knows how many years ago by two Smith grads, new in town and hoping to meet women. Since then, we've met many smart queers of various genders, read heaps of books, laughed a lot, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  We read books by and/or about queers: classics, contemporary and genre fiction, graphic novels, non-fiction, memoirs, plays, and poetry.  We convene the third Wednesday of the month at 7 PM.  After our discussion of the book chosen for the month, we adjourn to a local watering hole for socializing.  Join us, even if you didn't get around to reading the book--you never know who you might meet!
