John Waters spoke with The Front last week in a twenty-minute interview covering his new book ‘Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance’, spoken-word show and his filmography ahead of his appearance at Western Washington University this Saturday, May 21.
Finn Kurtz (he/him) is a campus news reporter for The Front. He is in his second-year, majoring in History/Social Studies and minoring in Political Science, and is also in the Journalism pre-major. His writing interests are student government, protests, and campus-based political, cultural and religious activism. He enjoys film (& film criticism, which makes him rather annoying), walking around his hometown (Bellingham!) and talking about how the 2003 reboot of Battlestar Galactica is a very good show indeed.
