Halcyon Stage Book Party in partnership with Politics & Prose: John Waters
7PM Conversation Begins | 8PM Meet-the-Author Reception
Iconic cult film director John Waters shares juicy advice with his new book, Making Trouble. With just enough time before college graduates must leave the college scene and embark on their journey into the real world, Waters offers some noteworthy advice to remember the “value in embracing chaos and weirdness.” These are two things this director of Pink Flamingoes and Hairspray knows well.
As a filmmaker, writer, and performer, Waters is first and foremost a true original—and the boldness that allowed him to make films like Hairspray and write books like Role Models and Crackpot, is the not-so secret ingredient to his success. His latest book, based on the commencement speech he delivered at the Rhode Island School of Design (which later went viral), is an inspiring message about charting your own course, from setting your own goals to achieving them on your own terms.
The Halcyon Stage Book Party with Politics & Prose series invites celebrated authors to discuss their work in an intimate social setting.
