Books and Crime: John Waters on Libraries and Librarians

By

“We need to make books cool again,” he said. “I had a plumber come into my house, and he said, ‘Did you read all these books? I hate reading: Turn the pages, right to left, right to left.’ I was astoundedy at his militancy.

“There’s a book for everyone,” Waters added. “You have to remember that it is impossible to commit a crime while reading a book.”

John Waters on crime and librarians. I laughed, but not everyone will, so brace yourself. (It’s also not true that you can’t commit a crime while reading, but I’m not going to quibble with the sentiment.)

Thanks to Library Link of the Day for this April 2nd story link.
