John Waters | Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America

Fri, June 13, 2014 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE


In conversation with Wesley Stace

Armed with wit, a pencil-thin mustache, and a cardboard sign that reads “I’m Not Psycho,” John Waters hitchhikes from Baltimore to San Francisco, braving lonely highways and risky drivers, celebrating America’s weird, surprising, and generous citizenry in his new book Carsick. Described by William Burroughs as “The Pope of Trash,” the legendary filmmaker, actor, and writer is famous for his cult films, including Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Polyester, Cry Baby, and Serial Mom. Waters is the author of several previous books, including Shock Value, Crackpot, and Role Models, and This Filthy World, his touring one-man show.
