John Waters US Book Tour Dates

Good news, everyone! The lecture reported on March 29 is actually part of a series of appearances John Waters will be making this Summer as part of a book tour in support of the release of ROLE MODELS.

For those who haven't been following along, ROLE MODELS is
"a self-portrait told through intimate profiles of favorite personalities—some famous, some unknown, some criminal, some surprisingly middle-of-the-road. From Esther Martin, owner of the scariest bar in Baltimore, to the playwright Tennessee Williams; from the atheist leader Madalyn Murray O’Hair to the insane martyr Saint Catherine of Siena; from the English novelist Denton Welch to the timelessly appealing singer Johnny Mathis—these are the extreme figures who helped the author form his own brand of neurotic happiness."
