HAPPY POPE OF TRASH WEDNESDAY: Yesterday, someone asked me about John Waters. Then I missed him and started watching Female Trouble in bed last night after a long day of meetings in the big, bad city. Then I dug up this shot of us at Coco 66 (RIP), where Word Brooklyn hosted his September 2010 reading for Role Models.
From my Library Journal interview with him:
“I look up to every person I write about because they’ve had a life more extreme than mine; they’ve had to be braver than I’ve had to be.”
Thank you again, Stephanie Anderson. Once more into the big, bad city!
