It has been nearly four decades since the first installment of "Tales of the City" appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle. The newspaper serial spawned a series of novels, a miniseries and a stage musical. Author Armistead Maupin has now published what he says is the final book in the series. In "The Days of Anna Madrigal," Maupin's heroine, now 92, takes a road trip to reconnect with her roots while her friends head to Burning Man. Maupin joins us to talk about his own journey with Anna and other the "Tales of the City" characters.
