He’s back! John Waters presents his new book Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder

May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

No one knows more about everything—especially everything rude, clever, and offensively compelling—than John Waters. The man in the pencil-thin mustache, auteur of the transgressive movie classics Pink FlamingosPolyester, the original HairsprayCry-Baby, and A Dirty Shame, is one of the world’s great sophisticates, and in Mr. Know-It-Allhe serves it up raw: how to fail upward in Hollywood; how to develop musical taste from Nervous Norvus to Maria Callas; how to build a home so ugly and trendy that no one but you would dare live in it; more important, how to tell someone you love them without emotional risk; and yes, how to cheat death itself. Through it all, Waters swears by one undeniable truth: “Whatever you might have heard, there is absolutely no downside to being famous. None at all.”

Tickets available mid–April.
