Movie & Game Night

John Waters Book Signing – Atomic Books


Saturday, May 25, 7PM. Free.
Atomic Books. 
Hampden, Baltimore.
3620 Falls Rd.

John Waters will be at Atomic Books, signing copies of his new book, Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom Of A Filth Elder!

Studded with cameos of Waters’ stars, from Divine and Mink Stole to Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner, Patricia Hearst, and Tracey Ullman, illustrated with unseen photos from Waters’ personal collection, Mr. Know-It-All is Waters’ most hypnotically readable, upsetting, revelatory book―another instant Waters classic.

You can reserve/pre-order a signed copy of the book here.

Facebook RSVP (not required).



Atomic Books and the Surrounding Hampden Area

In honor of the “King of Filth”, John Waters, the Hampden Village Merchants Association welcomes the public to experience a self-guided “Hollywood Stars” walk of fame in conjunction with John Waters new book release, appearance and book signing of Mr. Know-it-All. Each star marks a shooting location of the Waters directed film; Pecker (1998). Stars are scattered around Hampden and bear icons of their scene and Waters’ signature. Maps showing the locations of the stars can be picked up at Atomic Books on May 25th starting at 11:30 am and during the John Waters book signing event that evening from 7-9pm. Or you can download the map here.

STAR PROJECT created by:

Nolen Strals (Co-founder of Post Typography), Ben Claassen III (creator of Dirtfarm), and Samantha Claassen (owner of Golden West Cafe).
