The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin examines the life and work of one of the world's most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son of the Old South into a gay rights pioneer whose novels have inspired millions to claim their own truth. Jennifer Kroot's documentary about the creator of Tales of the City also gets by with some help from the author's friends - including Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen and Amy Tan - along with Maupin himself to offer a disarmingly frank look at the journey that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the batthouses of '70s San Francisco to the frontlines of America's ongoing culture war. 

Out on Film's Craig Hardesty will be joined in conversation by Armistead Maupin following the film. 

Out on Film, AJC Decatur Book Festival and Georgia Public Broadcasting are pleased to partner for this free event.
