It was Baltimore’s own John Waters, talking about architecture and his films at a benefit for the AIA Baltimore Chapter and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation at the historic Senator Theatre. He is a great raconteur and weaves funny stories in and out of his lectures. His newest book, Carsick, tells about his adventures hitch-hiking across the USA last summer.
I was lucky enough to attend a small dinner for John after the lecture and he’s a charming and funny man, and full of stories about our mutual background and love of all things Baltimore! He’s heading out next week to do a 17 city tour of his Christmas Show, which is hilarious! Look for it in your town!
Although I see John around town all of the time, it was a lot of fun to spend an evening listening to him reminisce!
