John Waters's commencement address to be published

Earlier this year at the Rhode Island School of Design, "filth elder" John Waters gave a brilliant commencement address in which he encouraged boldness in artistic expression and challenged students to "Horrify us with new ideas." Having been shared widely across the internet, the speech is now set to be published by Algonquin Books — in true Waters fashion, there will be artwork along with the text.

Watch the speech (and read an interview with John) here.
