It is with great pleasure that Homotopia, Liverpool’s annual festival of queer culture, announces that one of America’s greatest living Queer writers will be appearing at a special event this coming summer. As a tribute to Armistead, Homotopia will be hosting a very special event at the recently restored Small Concert Room in St Georges Hall.
Armistead will be reading from his new novel ‘Michael Tolliver Lives’ and will talking about his life and work. This event promises to be one of the highlights of 2007.
For all those die hard ‘Tales Of The City’ fans this will be a trip down Barbary Lane. It is hard to believe that it’s over 20 years since the series ended.
According to Armistead the novel is not strictly speaking a ‘Tales’ book but the insider news is that a ‘reassuring’ number of familiar faces will be appearing…
July 4th at 7pm
Small Concert Room – St Georges Hall
Tickets on sale soon at selected locations – please check homotopia.net for further information.
The event will also launch Homotopia’s new literature strand as part of the forthcoming festival in November. All of the Homotopia team are thrilled that such a high profile author has agreed to attend and give a reading at the festival. Armistead Maupin has kindly agreed to attend several community events in the day followed by a glittering occasion in the grand surroundings of the
Small Concert Room on Independence Day.
